Youth Theatre: Two fully-mounted, professionally-staged productions per year featuring children’s literary classics with Conservatory students as primary cast and stage crew. Grant funding supports unforgettable performance experiences and provides tickets for children who cannot afford to attend. Theatre for A New Generation presents engaging dramas exploring social, historical and contemporary issues that promote dialogue among teens, families and educators. Grant funding supports these productions and facilitated Stage Talks. Youth Conservatory is for students, 8-18, dedicated to training in theatre and performance for an entire year. Scholarships are available for low-income students. Conservatory students study with theatre artists on-stage and off; learn teamwork while building a community of artists; develop effective, life-long communication and presentation skills; and, improve problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

TheatreReach: Bringing Books to Life is a professional theatre experience that tours to local elementary schools in economically disadvantaged areas. Designed to support literacy achievement of 3rd - 5th graders, TheatreReach uses professional actors to perform an interactive story-telling experience that brings books to life, inspires reading and enhances comprehension. Since 1999, it has received praise from area educators for: 1) bringing artistically excellent performances to children and schools that lack access to the arts; 2) relevant ties to required reading and California’s curriculum standards in Visual/Performing Arts, History/Social Science, English/Language Arts; 3) promoting literacy, especially among English-learners. TheatreReach is often a first exposure to live theatre for students who lack access to the arts. It helps fill the cultural gap created by loss of arts funding in public schools. TheatreReach serves approx. 7,000 students in 40 elementary schools annually.
