Audiences at Children's Theatre Company

Act One

ACT One is CTC’s cohesive platform for access, diversity, and inclusion in our audiences, our programs, our staff, and our board. Three interdependent words of action guide our commitment to a future when our theatre is a home for all people, all families, reflective of our community: Access, Connect, Transform.

  • Grow and cultivate participation by Latinos in CTC’s productions, audiences, classes, and camps.

Community Partnerships

Children’s Theatre Company firmly believes that building authentic, long term, and mutually beneficial relationships is vital to building a just, equitable, diverse and inclusive community that will transform our audience, staff, board and the work we present on our stages. We partner with Twin Cities organizations to enrich cultural conversations, inform the arts we put on our stages, create bridges between disparate communities, and become a space where the boundaries that separate us can dissolve away.
