Children's Theater of Madison

Since our first performance in 1965, Children's Theater of Madison (CTM) has been committed to producing high quality, professional productions that are enjoyed by all ages.  From the extraordinary talent of our adult and youth actors to the fabulous sets and costumes and the imaginative interpretations of great plays and musicals, we have been a mainstay in the Madison community, delighting and enriching lives through the magic of theater. In addition to a wide variety of productions CTM also offers training in acting and musical theater through our weekend studio classes and our acclaimed Summer Drama School.


The health and safety of our patrons, students, families, artists, and staff is of the highest priority, and we thank you so very much for your patronage and support through this turbulent time. Based on the recommendations of the Wisconsin DHS and out of caution for your health and wellbeing, we have made an extremely difficult and heartfelt decision to cancel all public and school performances of Peter Pan.

The artistry and dedication of the actors, creative team, and crew on this musical has been vast and wondrous, and we are working hard on alternative ways to share this amazing work with you. The impact on everyone involved is devastating.

Now, we ask for your patience as we work on the details to determine options regarding tickets. We will be reaching out to all ticket buyers as soon as possible to offer solutions.

By its very nature, theatre is meant to bring people together, and this is indeed a time to pull together as a community. Please keep in mind, that many external factors are creating an environment in flux. CTM is immensely grateful for your understanding over the coming days, and we will provide information as soon as it is available.

With heartfelt thanks,

Allen Ebert, Executive Director
Roseann Sheridan, Artistic Director
