Our Mission
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
