Our Core Beliefs

Theater arts are among the greatest joys in life, to be experienced and shared with as many people as possible, including those who do not have the means to purchase a ticket to a live professional performance.

Theater is a one-of-a-kind tool for learning, connecting and profoundly enriching the lives of children and adults.

We can use theater arts and artists to ignite positive change in Los Angeles' most disadvantaged schools and communities.

Theater is a tool for accelerating the learning and achievement of Los Angeles' most economically and educationally disadvantaged youth.

"Exposure" to theater (a one-off experience of a play) is not nearly enough. Lasting impact is only possible through long-term, well-designed theater arts experiences.
