Childrenâ€™s Theater of Annapolis stages two or more full productions annually with casts of 30 to 40 children on the Main Stage of the theater complex.

Approximately 7500 families in the greater Baltimore Washington Annapolis region are impacted by CTA annually. Founded in 1959, CTA is located at 1661 Bay Head Road in Bay Head Park, Annapolis.
In addition to arts education for 5 to 18 year olds, CTA provides a scholarship program. Graduating high school seniors who are members of CTA may participate in the Miriam Wolfe Scholarship, which was established in 1988 in memory of former CTA member Miriam Wolfe who was a victim of the bombing of flight 103 over Lockerby Scotland. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage and recognize CTA high school seniors who will pursue an interest in the arts as a part of their continuing education in college.
