CREATING IN NEW SPACES
Embracing creation for performance in these shifting times.
From TikTok, to a one-person show, to a physically distanced outdoor production, the possibilities are now endless when creating performances. Going beyond a typical playwriting class, students will explore the writing and creation process in a variety of mediums with short projects. Using their creativity and imagination, students will then take what they have learned into a final project of their own vision.

We believe that every child has a creative voice that should be nurtured. We believe that freedom of expression is necessary for healthy societies. We believe that theatre is a powerful means of creative expression that has the ability to transform individuals and society as a whole. Thus, we exist to share our love of theatre with our students. We do this by creating a safe, respectful environment where our students:
- Experience individual and collective success
- Challenge themselves
- Feel free to take risks
- Pursue excellence
- Enjoy the potential for personal transformation
