In addition to other arts and theater classes, our Education Program offers two dedicated annual courses that provide area youth with exceptional education in the performing arts.

Purple Door Youth Theater
Purple Door Youth Theater is an after-school program that provides students (grades 2-12) with hands-on instruction in every aspect of producing a successful play, from acting to costuming to set design. Each PDYT course culminates with a two-week run of public performances.

Young People’s Theater Workshop
Young People’s Theater Workshop offers two multi-week summer camps where students work in groups to write, produce and perform an original play.  Each summer, themes are chosen for youth to use as inspiration for their plays, and each age group works closely with a director and choreographer.
