our mission

To captivate and energize 4th thru 12th grade children 

in Los Angeles’ underserved communities.  

                                                                             

 Through challenging after-school programs on site in Title 1 schools,

we alchemize the magic of theatre with academics, awareness, and life-skills,

teach our students to responsibly and powerfully navigate their world.

“IF I CAN DO SHAKESPEARE, I CAN DO ANYTHING!”.
