are a year-round after-school and summer performing arts program. Its mission is to build supportive, creative communities and to put on great shows. Now in its eighth year, the program includes: the HILLTOWN YOUTH THEATRE SUMMER WORKSHOP providing intensive training, artistic and professional skill building and leadership development for young performers, musicians, artists and set designers and a six month THEATRE ENRICHMENT PROGRAM for nine towns and five small, community-based elementary schools underserved by the arts. In 2015, in response to a statewide opioid crisis, we launched our newest project the RECOVERY THEATRE, a performing arts experience for young people overcoming addiction, trauma, anxiety, depression and other behavioral health challenges. Our programs emphasize sustainability, innovation, creativity, and leadership and foster these values in every young person whose life we touch.
