Artist / Program Description:
Music Theatre Workshop is a small company of professional artist/teachers who have developed a repertory of issue-based musical theatre works that aid in youth development. Since 1984, Music Theatre Workshop has been presenting plays and musicals that allow youth to connect choices to their consequences. When attending a performance of one of these musical plays, youth are taught to examine their personal challenges and make more informed choices. Music Theatre Workshop has provided thousands of young people with the inspiration and means necessary to build healthier relationships, and transform personal obstacles into opportunities. Though its primary audience has been young people, the company has presented over forty productions to multi-generational groups at schools, cultural institutions, and other community facilities.
