Our goals:  

  • To promote theatre and artistic endeavors for the community and by the community.
  • To teach theatre basics and give everyone who wishes to be involved a caring and nurturing environment to learn the craft of theatre.
  • To create a sense of inclusion and participation in the arts and a place to practice creative expression.
