Children's Theatre of Charlotte Resident Touring Company
Our Resident Touring Company (formerly known as the Tarradiddle Players*) has performed for over one million children, in schools, community centers -- towns big and small -- across the Southeast, bringing smiles (and maybe a tear or two) to the faces of everyone they meet. We now offer a special Preschool Tour for Preschool audiences.
* A Note on Our Name: We are phasing out the use of Tarradiddle Players as the name of our Resident Touring Company. Originally an independent company founded in 1972 by Connie Welsh, Tarradiddle became part of Children’s Theatre of Charlotte in 1989. Since then, CTC has shepherded the Tarradiddle legacy while building on the Company’s strong professional brand. As Children’s Theatre of Charlotte continues to expand our production and educational offerings across the Southeast, we want all our offerings to carry the CTC name. But rest assured, we will continue to offer the same magical, professional touring experiences you’ve come to expect, and in that way the true legacy of the Tarradiddle Players will live on!
