Cinnabar Theater The Young Rep Program (Aired July 16, 2019)

The Young Rep
Cinnabar Theater
2019-2020 Season

Godspell

Cinnabar Theater is committed to training young people in the performing arts to make a lasting and meaningful con­nection between the arts and their daily lives. We see the impact theater has on kids every day. It teaches empathy and responsibility. It fosters creativity, teamwork and leadership. It creates community.

Our Young Repertory was founded in 1983 to counteract the precipitous decline in arts funding for public schools. Over the years, we’ve served thousands of students and are enormously proud that no child is ever turned away for lack of funds.

The Young Rep serves youth of all ages, from 4-year-olds who are just starting pre-school to 18-year-olds finishing high school. We offer fully-produced shows, fun summer camps, after-school classes, Broadway-level seminars, ticket discounts, and community service opportunities. Everything takes place in the iconic red schoolhouse perched atop a grassy hill on the outskirts of Petaluma.

The 2019-2020 Season will include:
Frozen (Summer Rep Camp)
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Lord of the Flies
and Carrie The Musical
