Most Valuable Kids

Tickets to The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati are non-refundable, but if you can't attend a show you may turn them in to the TCTC Box Office before the performance. The value of the returned tickets can be considered a fully tax deductible gift to The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati.

We also encourage you to donate your tickets to Most Valuable Kids of Greater Cincinnati, Inc. MVK overcomes the financial obstacles associated with live events by distributing unused tickets to kids who would enjoy the opportunity to go to an event, but would otherwise not be able to because of the high costs associated with tickets. These tickets are distributed to boys and girls,18 and under, through local tax-exempt organizations that focus on children in low-income and underserved households. They require 24 hours in advance or by noon on Friday for a Saturday or Sunday performance.  For details visit:  Most Valuable Kids.
