MISSION & VISION:
Founded in 1999 in NewYork City, and in 1989 in Los Angeles, the Children’s Theatre Company is a non-profit 501(C)(3) educational theater organization and publisher of over 15 original musicals designed to complement an ethical and social studies curriculum for young audiences. “Building Character Onstage”, the Company fosters the belief that, through the arts, young people can be agents of healing in the world. Committed to character and ethical development, CTC is rooted in the belief that through the incomparable magic of theater combined with a robust ethical education curriculum, children and youth can indeed become the voices of positive change.

CTC promotes theater as a tool for active and analytical learning (rather than prescribed and passive), and is centered on a pedagogical and community development approach which emphasizes a culture of inclusivity and service through arts.
