Our mission

To build community, foster character development, and encourage creative potential for youth in our community by providing an experience in theatre education and performance in a positive environment.

We believe in the power of music and the arts. So whether a child is performing on stage or learning how to run a lighting board, we believe they can walk away with skills that will be applicable throughout their lives.
