Danny Feldman, Producing Artistic Director of Pasadena Playhouse, said:
We believe that experiencing plays and making live theater should be for everyone, especially kids. This major expansion is rooted in our extraordinary history as one of the leading theater schools in America, with an aim to engage and spark creativity and imagination at a critical time for these young artists and audience members. By opening our doors wider to include thousands of young people and their families every year, our impact on our community will expand greatly and will resonate for years to come.”
Erin Baker, Chairperson of Pasadena Playhouse Board of Trustees, adds, “As the State Theater of California, we feel it is the right time for this expansion and to lead the field. By increasing access to the theater for children and their families, we are growing the future of arts creators and attendees, and ensuring that theater everywhere can once again flourish. This pivotal moment is possible because of Pasadena Playhouse’s vibrant team of dreamers and doers, who are generously supported by a community of believers.”
