Since 2002, Creative Cauldron has provided innovative, inclusive, affordable arts education to the Greater Washington community, annually offering 200+ performances of live theater and music, 60% of which involve casts of young people. At its home venue, teaching artists, directors, designers, and performers strengthen studentsí artistic and technical skills. In the Learning Theater Ensemble, youth team up with experienced actors and directors, receiving intensive mentoring throughout an extended performance run. Musical Theater offers pre-professional voice and dance training for middle and high schoolers who perform alongside the professionals. Together with studio classes for young children (acting, improv, set design), a six-week summer camp, free workshops and camp enrollments for kids who canít afford them, off-site programs at local schools, tickets for veterans, and outings for limited-income seniors and intellectually disabled citizens, some 15,000 people enrich this creative community each year.
