THEATRE FOR YOUTH
Partners in Education and Arts
PEAC is a residency program which brings
the performing arts to schools who do not have funding for
arts education. This after school program is conducted for two hours on
a weekly basis by professional actors leading 18 seventh graders through
a series of theatrical exercises which are designed to give students a
basic foundation of theatre skills.
The youth touring show changes from year
to year to offer students from grades K - 12 exposure to the arts and
well as opening them to different cultures and backgrounds. Previous
productions included ALLOS: The Story of Carlos Bulosan,
ASIAN PACIFIC TALES and DAWN'S LIGHT: The Journey of Gordon Hirabayashi
and David Henry Hwang's Obie Award Winning Play F.O.B.
FLIGHT: The Katherine Cheung Story, 2011
East West Players presents a fun, creative and playful 1-week summer program for children ages
10 -14 to learn together in a nurturing and welcoming environment. Children learn and play together to develop strong team work skills, build self confidence and help stretch their imagination.
