THEATRE FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES

REGISTRATION FOR WINTER CLASSES IS NOW OPEN!!


Who's ready to start a theatre class??

Mariposa believes that the adults deserve a night out once in a while too!! So we have a Cabaret Series just for the adults.  Each Cabaret will have a theme and 4 fantastic singers to entertain you for an evening without the kids.  Click below for more information and to buy tickets!

As the Year, and we are talking Fiscal year for some people, is winding down, we can't thank those of you who have donated to help us GET THE PARTY STARTED!! We've been able to move into our space and begin performances and classes are coming.  But the work never ends, and our fundraising campaign still has a way to go.


How can you get involved?  I am so glad you asked.  Follow the link below and it will take you to the main fundraising page.  You can add yourself to an existing team, start your own team, or just decide to be an individual fundraiser. You can also just decide to be one of our supporters and make a donation.  That would be awesome too.


But honestly, what's in it for you? Wellour fundraisers will be the recipients of SWAG when they hit certain dollar amounts.  And at the end of the campaign, our top two fundraisers will receive naming rights to the 2 individual studios in the space! WHAT?!?!?!  Naming rights??  But aren't things like that usually saved for big donors?  Yes, but what are our top fundraisers if not the best donors we could ever ask for.


So don't wait, get on the Party Train! We need you.

Want to boost literacy? Teach your child to imagine the unimaginable?
Cultivate curiosity? Get thee to the theater, and bring your kids.


Many schools that used to round out reading, writing, and arithmetic with a yearly jaunt to see Shakespeare in action, or Jack ascending the beanstalk, have now scrapped these field trips in favor of spending more time preparing for standardized tests and drilling “fundamentals”. The question is, how can you, as a parent, pick up the slack?


Students who make time for the arts are also more involved in community service, and less likely to drop out of school. And we’re not just talking about upper middle class kids. These facts remain, regardless of a child’s socio-economic background.


If you inspire a love of theater early on, there's a better chance that your child will develop creative gifts, and maintain a lifelong appreciation for the performing arts. Kids brains are being hardwired and parents can help spark those neural pathways of creativity.

So come see a show!  You never know what you might learn!
