Ballyhoo Theatre's purpose is to enrich, educate and entertain our community by providing a superior theatre experience, to provide education in the theatre arts to children and young adults, and to create a safe and inclusive environment.
In meeting these goals, we strive to:
CREATE quality entertainment through theatrical productions.
FOSTER an open, safe and inclusive environment for young people to express who they are.
PROMOTE the values of respect, pride and unity.
At Ballyhoo Theatre our focus is education and inclusion. We celebrate people of every gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, and ability. We strive, always, to address and maintain a space that works towards anti-racism and DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) and acknowledges when we fall short. We work to create a safe and inclusive space for young performers to be seen and joyously accepted, and to explore, learn and thrive.
Ballyhoo Theatre was founded in 1999. We have served hundreds of students over the years to meet the goals included in our mission statement. Many of our alumni work professionally in theatre, film, music performance, technical theatre and theatre education. We also have students currently enrolled in top music and theatre colleges around the country. Participants in our program have learned confidence, a sense of purpose, a strong work ethic, and have discovered how to truly express themselves and who they are. Theatre enriches us all.
