All About Theatre

Organization Mission

All About Theatre’s mission is to inspire, nurture, challenge, amaze, educate and empower artists and audiences in the Santa Cruz County area.

We provide a healthy and wholesome ambassadorship for the arts and open the door to new life experiences. We are dedicated to providing financially accessible arts experiences to all communities, regardless of size or economic status. We strive to use participation in the performing arts as a vehicle to develop life skills for all.

The Big Idea:
Arts for All

Community is at the core of what we do. We are blessed to serve more than 400 individuals per year in the county. This project is tailored to serve children and families in South County, to build a bridge to share the riches of our joint communities. Arts for All has already begun, but with your support it could soar.

Theater enables us to make lifelong friendships, with people we would never have otherwise met, and to learn about cultures other than our own. Families as well as kids continually inspire each other and foster a community spirit that keeps on growing. The professional-level skills we teach are also job skills in high demand in the flourishing entertainment industry.

While not every child wants to be on stage, every child has the capacity to be moved, learn empathy, laugh, and be awed by the special magic that happens during a live performance—whether on stage, in the audience, or backstage. Our professional training also covers tech, running equipment, stage management, hair and make-up design, and more.


Everyone here is my family. All About Theatre has taught me so much and given me confidence in who I am.
