Children's Theatre Workshop

2417 Collingwood Boulevard
Toledo, OH 43620


History :

The Children's Theatre Workshop, one of the oldest continually operating children's theaters in the country, began in 1954. The Junior League of Toledo and the American Association of University Women organized CTW with the purpose of providing theater training for area youth. Many children's theater companies use adults to perform and the children become audience. Our children are involved in all aspects of theater, as the activities are age-appropriate. Since its inception, Children's Theatre has gone through many changes. Through it all, the mission has remained the same: to provide theater by children, for children.

Today, while no longer associated with the Junior League or AAUW, Children's Theatre Workshop continues in the same tradition. We are a non-profit organization (501(c)3 corporation as defined by the IRS, that is embarking into the twenty-first century and celebrating our 50th year.. CTW found its first home at the Toledo Zoo's Indoor Theater, which was located in the Science Building.
