They'll be streaming two productions this fall, though.
Children's Theater Company (CTC)

With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to take its toll on both lives and businesses, the Children's Theater Company (CTC) has called off its usual lineup for the rest of the year.

This week, the landmark Minneapolis theater announced that it would not hold a staged production again until March 2021:

The productions will be "Seedfolks," an original work which will run March 2 through April 11, 2021, and the classic "Annie," which kicks off April 27 and ends June 27, 2021.

That's not to say the CTC will be completely quiet in the meantime. 

This fall, the theater will digitally stream two of its "highly acclaimed productions," "Corduroy" and "Last Stop on Market Street."

Additionally, CTC is holding classes through its Virtual Academy throughout the summer; these include "Master Class" offerings from celebrated Broadway figures. You can learn more by clicking right here.
