Health & Safety Protocols

CTC is open for live, in-person performances and classes!

At Children’s Theatre Company, the safety of our patrons, students, artists, and staff is our highest priority. We monitor and follow guidelines and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and continually refine our policies to ensure a safe, clean, comfortable experience for everyone.

COVID-19 Safety Protocols for Public Performances (as of March 30, 2023)

Children’s Theatre Company recommends and encourages that audiences wear a mask in the theatre and lobby spaces.

Masks and proof of vaccination or a negative test are no longer required to attend a show at CTC.   

CTC has invested in clean air filtration systems, including adding MERV-13 air filters and iWave ionic air purification systems to all our HVAC systems to optimize the amount of clean, fresh air flowing through our building. CTC will continue our established enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols.   

Behind the scenes and for our audience services staff, we will continue to follow strict protocols to keep our shows on stage and to create a safe work environment for artists and staff. If even one member of our cast or crew contracts COVID-19, it could create a cascading effect of canceled rehearsals and performances. Our efforts are intended to keep our artists and staff healthy, our performances open and engaging, and our audiences safe to fully enjoy their CTC experience.
