Both fresh creations and classics from children's literature are brought to life at this family-focused regional theatre. A Minneapolis institution since 1961, CTC boasts performances of the highest caliberTony Award caliber, to be precise (CTC won in 2003 for outstanding regional theatre). Through programs such as Threshold, a "play laboratory," young actors are able to collaborate with the country's leading playwrights to develop new works for the CTC stage. The Michael Graves-designed Cargill Stage, added in 2001 to the company's downtown Stevens Square location, expanded the theater's reach into the teen audience with productions that include more mature themes and durable crowd pleasers like High School Musical.

Insider Tip:

Cash-strapped theater lovers can take advantage of CTC's occasional "pay what you can" performances or volunteer to usher a performance (which will score you a comped ticket).
