"What you have created here is such a blessing for us young performers, and I will always be grateful to you for allowing me to be a part of it.  I feel like I'm leaving home, because that's the family you've created.  You've taught me so much as a director, performer, and person - what it really means to do this thing we call theatre.  Keep doing what you're doing...we are all so lucky."

As a Not-for-Profit Organization, cultivating respect and appreciation for the Arts through excellence in education and performance, only a part of our operating budget comes from tuition & tickets.  Join us today  in the fulfilling of our mission in our community by making a donation or scholarship pledge; or learn more about us here...
