Community and Education Programs

SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY THROUGH ARTS EDUCATION

The Orpheum Theatre Group strives to inspire a lasting love of the arts in our community’s youth. Theatre stimulates the imagination and helps children develop skills that will benefit them into adulthood. Through both onstage performance and behind-the-scenes technical management, students explore their artistic and creative sides while strengthening their listening, observation, social, leadership, and cognition skills, which in turn motivates present-day students to become future practitioners, educators, and arts attendees. As any lover of the arts will tell you, these formative experiences often inspire a lifelong passion.

Explore all of the upcoming workshops, camps, teacher professional development, and classes coming up at the Halloran Centre and Orpheum.
