our mission

Develop, promote, and support the cultural and performing arts industry in the region.

Produce and present, independently or in concert with other institutions or individuals, theatrical productions, pre recorded media, and other events of a similar nature for the cultural enrichment of the community.

the benefits

laughlovejoy image

People are drawn to the arts not for their instrumental effects, but because the arts can provide them with meaning and with a distinctive type of pleasure and emotional stimulation. The arts connect people more deeply to the world and open them to different ways of seeing and experiencing the world. These intrinsic effects are satisfying in themselves, but many of them can lead to the development of greater individual capacities and community cohesiveness that are of great benefit to society.

Socially and emotionally, theater participation plays an important role in the development of teenagers. Educationally, writing a script for a monologue or play is an effective way to teach students about the English language and creative composition.

learning image

Numerous studies show many students exhibit improved academic performance and test scores; improved basic skills, such as reading, mathematics, creative thinking, as well as improved attitudes and skills that promote the learning process itself, particularly the ability to learn how to learn.

Participation, whether as a performer or a spectator, is great fun as well!!
