Mission Statement: Empowering young thespians to take control of the creative process
We are a new theater company founded by and for teenagers. Our goal is to produce musical productions completely performed, directed, stage managed, designed, and produced by young people. We are driven by the desire to give teens experience in all aspects of the theatre and to expand and grow their skill set. We aim to create a community of passionate and driven students who are eager to work hard and explore their craft. Our shows seek participation from students age 13-18 in the Santa Fe area with a wide range of theatrical experience.
