Children's Theatre Company
2400 3rd Avenue South

Join us for this sensory-friendly performance of The Abominables, Minnesota's first hockey musical! Rink rats, hockey moms, tournament weekends and the quest to play your best – It’s tryout season in the Great State of Hockey! Mitch has always played on the A team for the Prairie Lake Blizzards – these are his guys – they've played together forever. But he hasn't hit his growth spurt yet and he's worried this could be the year he gets sent down to the B team. When a new “kid” appears at Bantam tryouts, things go from bad to worse. Will you love it? You betcha! Click here for more information and to order tickets.

A limited number of volunteer seats are available for this performance. Volunteers welcome guests, hand out information from the AuSM resource table in the lobby, and often help with intermission activities.
