The mission for Walnut Street Theatre's Education Programs is: to build
audiences for tomorrow, to educate audiences of today, to enrich the
community, to provide an outlet for at-risk children, to enrich the lives of
children, to bring the arts to schools, to encourage arts-in-education and to
nurture growing theatre artists.
Walnut Street Theatre believes that theatre is a profound tool for creating
connections. Students learn to connect with their curriculum, their peers,
their communities and their inner-selves. Theatre creates bridges between the
world of the student and uncharted worlds which students may explore in new
ways. Above all we strive to create new opportunities for success for our
students and to increase self confidence, strengthen collaborative skills,
improve learning, and expand an individual's world-view.
The Theatre School at Walnut Street Theatre is the most popular and vital
theatre training ground in the Delaware Valley.
