Children’s Theatre of Madison
Can true villains ever change?
Do any of us REALLY have control of our own story?
Young thespians participating in the new Children’s Theatre of Madison will perform their debut show to help answer these questions in Happily Ever After by George Halitzka. When Gregory Wolf shows up at the Grimm Brothers’ Office, he only wants one thing: a happy ending. Gregory believes that even a wolf can live happily ever after, but Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs are convinced that he’s destined to be a villain. Gregory could be a wolf with a heart of gold or he could have Grandmas on his mind. Only Jacob Grimm can give him a story that’s just right.
Dr. Brenda Harper is the director of the Children’s Theatre of Madison, and she opened their doors to students who have a passion for drama in August of this year. With classes for children ages “4 – 104” CTM strives to place each and every child in the spotlight and enhance their life through theatre.
Each of the instructors are professionally qualified, and every employee’s credentials have been validated and passed background checks. The security system provides a safe environment to learn, and the theatrical stage is the highlight of CTM’s performances! There are no registration fees required to participate. CTM is also unique because of their memberships in national organizations like Theatre Communications Group, and Theatrical Education Group.
Happily Ever After – Saturday, October 12th at 5:00 PM
A Christmas Wizard of Oz, adapted from L. Frank Baum, By Kathryn Schultz Miller – date TBD pending auditions
Each show will be performed at the CTM theatrical stage located inside Madison Entrepreneur Center at 102 Tribble Drive in Madison.
In addition to seasonal productions, the Children’s Theatre of Madison is also offering a sampling of early Fall classes that will run through October 11th. It’s a great way to try a variety of classes if your little actor isn’t sure what they want to focus on, as well as introduce your family to the organization.

It’s been exciting to see my daughter and all the cast members work hard on this play. But the best part is how much fun they have in rehearsals. I am thrilled that Madison now has another creative outlet for our kids to be involved in.

Children’s Theatre of Madison has been amazing with my 7 year old son who was diagnosed with Autism last year. He has come so far since the start of his 8 week class “The Acting Bug!” I look forward to watching him continue to learn and grow with the help of the amazing staff at the theatre!

I have a 2 year old and the hammiest thing he does is fall out when he can’t have something. But while he’s on the ground (after he did a slow non-injuring fall because he “carefully” falls out) he will say I fall out momma! I fall out! It’s not a fall out if you are able to dialogue what you’re doing sir.
It sounds like a great show! The hammiest thing my youngest kid (3 yrs) does: after every shot of putt-putt she turns to us and yells “I got robbed!”
The hammiest thing my 3 year old does is try to get naked time. She is almost impossible to put clothes on at home. I told her yesterday ‘fairy wings and socks does not mean you are dressed’.
After seeing her first play, my 5 year old drug every chair we own into the living room and re-enacted the whole thing from the coffee table. We all have to clap and watch the show.
My son loves to act, but he tends to overdo it. His hammiest moments are when he rehearses his lines, in his underwear, while singing opera AND doing some ninja kicks at the same time. It’s a little much, but definitely entertaining.
My daughter would enjoy this show! She loves to sing songs and dance at home, but she is nervous to be on stage.
My five year old hams it up all the time. She loves it when I tell other people funny things that she has said. Yesterday I was explaining the difference between being telling a lie and telling a joke. She said, “Mom, I don’t want to be a liar, I want to be a joker like you!”
I would love to win this!!!!!:)
alright the thing that comes to mind is when we brought our 2 child home. my daughter was two and i tried to get her to ho,ld her new baby brother and she said to “i dont want him take him back” then she turns to him and says” i love you baby brother” then storms off to the kitchen very dramaticly might i add.
