At Young Actors Theatre we know confidence, creativity and discipline are skills every child needs to achieve a path to success. We believe we can develop these skills and help our students become outstanding individuals in our community through the art of theatre. Our goal is not to produce professional actors, but to produce successful members of society who have the skills necessary to achieve their dreams.
Currently we annually serve approximately 1,300 youth participants, 12,000+ audience members, present a minimum of 20 productions and 65 performances, and are run by three full-time staff members, three part-time staff members, four contracted employees, and 100 volunteers.
