The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is the oldest children’s theater in the country and the only professional theater in the region that devotes its entire MainStage season to children. It brings 82,000 people downtown annually and reaches over 68,000 students through its touring productions. Its TCT Academy offers arts training to children in a variety of disciplines.

The TCT MainStage at the Taft series includes daytime performances for school audiences and weekend performances for the public.  Four Broadway-quality production runs are held each year (of which one is a world-premiere musical), with individual shows formatted into one-hour, family-friendly events.

TCT on Tour brings the magic of live theatre directly to those who would otherwise be unable to enjoy it. They tour six productions each season, serving children of all ages with titles from classic literature, fairy tales, history, and other works studied in school curricula. TCT on Tour prides itself on educational and entertaining productions, as well as affordable for schools and other venues across the broad geographic spectrum of Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and beyond.

TCT Academy offers arts training to children in a variety of disciplines through twelve-week, one hour/week class sessions, one-week themed summer camps for introductory arts makers or audition-based, three-week STAR Camp Red Bank program, and one-month, audition-based STAR Intensive NKU summer program for children with demonstrated talent and interest in the performing arts.
