Facility Rental

Are you looking for an enchanting and non-traditional space for your meeting, wedding, lecture, or party? Rent the facilities at Children's Theatre Company for your next event!

Our UnitedHealth Group Stage and Cargill Stage are dynamic and inviting spaces with full lighting, sound, and visual media capabilities run by a professional technical staff. The lobbies of these spaces are additional locations for more intimate events.

Our approach to your event is the same as our approach to theatre – each special occasion is unique. The combined details of your event are unlike any other, so we work to ensure each piece fluidly joins together in composing a memorable experience.

Children’s Theatre Company welcomes ANY caterer with their license and insurance.
Liquor can be served if the caterer has a traveling liquor license.

Availability is based on CTC’s theatre production schedule. Please call to inquire about open dates.
