Shana Bestock, Producing Artistic Director
Engage, Empower, Create.
THROUGH THEATER, WE NURTURE CREATIVITY, PASSION, AND EMPATHY.
WE BELIEVE PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND EXPERIENCE LEVELS CAN BE THEATER ARTISTS.
OUR WORK EXPANDS CAPACITY FOR PERSONAL AND COMMUNAL ENGAGEMENT.

"The culture you create brings out the best in each of us who participate."
"For many kids, you change the equation from failing to thriving."
"There aren't a lot of organizations that will take a chance on a young artist, that will say 'yes' to a strong idea and help make it happen."
"The show was smart, original, funny, and so well-done."
"...a community based on a strong vision of supporting kids and emerging adults through meaningful theater events."
"Thank YOU for the show. I have to say it was the most thoroughly entertaining political satire we’ve seen in a long time. You did a great job, integrating the whole spectrum of talent into a delightful show that hopped."
"There are lots of places to do theatre, but there aren't a lot of communities like this one."
