A Note from the Executive Director:

Dear Friends of CCT,

The last two weeks have been the most difficult and trying of our 57 year history. Never before have we had to deal with circumstances such as these and the same goes for every arts and cultural institution around the world.

We have had to cancel THE BOX SHOWCRAWLS FLIES & SQUIRMSIN-SCHOOL PERFORMANCES, and our large spring musical - a co-production of MATILDA - THE MUSICAL with CATCO Is Kids. We have also had to cancel our Special Fundraising Event - "Mischief at the Mansion" that was to be held at the newly restored Snowden Gray Mansion.

The negative financial impact of these cancellations is enormous for a company of our size. However, the financial impact is minimal compared to the disappointment of the students, families, and local artists impacted by the COVID-19 virus.

As a small/mid-sized cultural institution, we rely heavily on the community to sustain our operations...and now more than ever.

If our organization has touched your family through our Academy Classes, Summer Camps, Productions, Volunteerism, or through your Philanthropic Support...I ask you to make a contribution to Columbus Children's Theatre today.

We have no idea how long we will have to "weather this storm." However, when the sky does clear and the "gates swing open", we hope to remain the place where the youth of Columbus can come running for their artistic fulfillment.

Your support can ensure this.

Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

accessible from the comfort of your own

thing! Make sure to follow along with our
