Children's Theatre Company is a non-profit organization that provides not only a creative haven for children through theatre and arts, but also a 'think-tank' where values such as peace, racial harmony, and unity in diversity are explored and indeed, celebrated. CTC maintains a resident of child actors and artists, performing and exhibiting their work in a rotating repertory of musical plays and exhibitions housed at the Baha’i Unity Center’s John Birks Gillespie Auditorium in Greenwich Village, which the group received as a space grant. Named for Dizzy Gillespie, it is a fabulous 141-seat red-velvet proscenium theatre. While developing their talents, children also confront and examine themes and issues, which face humanity and the world, which they will inherit. CTC's goal is to provide each child an honest, reverent, relevant, and challenging artistic experience.
