COVID-19 & Schedule Update

A Message to our Patrons

We hope you and your family have been healthy and safe during the coronavirus pandemic. As you know, we suspended and postponed over 160 performances this spring and summer due to the shutdown. We’re deeply grateful to you for sticking with us and for being loyal and patient during this time of uncertainty. After months of planning, we are pleased to share with you our plans for the 2020 – 2021 Season.

As we have been making decisions about next season, the safety of our audiences, artists, and staff has been our guiding principle and highest priority. We’ve made our plans with a commitment to ensuring the highest safety standards when we resume productions on our stages.

We will begin staged productions in March 2021 with our original production, Seedfolks, which will run for six weeks on the Cargill Stage, from March 2 – April 11, 2021. Seedfolks was developed and premiered in 2014 and has since toured to South Africa, New York’s New Victory Theatre, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, and nine Greater Minnesota theatres. Seedfolks was originally scheduled for performances this fall. The season will conclude with our much anticipated, postponed production of Annie which will run April 27 – June 27, 2021.

We will also present two productions digitally that were critically acclaimed in past seasons—Last Stop on Market Street and Corduroy. These will be available in the fall and we will soon share with you specific dates once they are set.

Those holding tickets for Annie, Seedfolks, or a 2020-2021 subscription may contact the Ticket Office to check on the status of their tickets.

The Ticket Office is closed for any in-person visits, and staff are currently working remotely. For assistance, please email tickets@childrenstheatre.org or call 612.874.0400.

Through the continued commitment to programs such as ACT One, CTC@Home, Virtual Academy, and New Play Development activities, CTC will continue our mission to educate, challenge, and inspire young people and their communities through theatre.

Again, our most sincere thanks and appreciation for your support of CTC. You, our audience, are an essential part of the theatrical experience and we can’t wait to welcome you back to the theatre next year.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Motes
Managing Director
