Excellence in art changes lives ~ Empowered young people create artistic excellence
Our mission is to provide a nurturing and challenging educational environment through the completion of a musical production/revue. We strive to provide a high-quality and diverse experience in all areas of the performing arts. In this light, it is our goal to foster an appreciation, understanding, and love of the performing arts with a clear intent to touch the heart, engage the mind, and transform lives by creating extraordinary theater experiences for the young people in our program.
