THEATRE FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES

Classes start MOnday April 9!!  There is still time to register.


And it's not too early to get registered for summer camp!  Take a look at the full and half day options we have available.  Ages 7 and up.  Offerings for 5-7 year olds will be listed soon.

Mariposa believes that the adults deserve a night out once in a while too!! So we have a Cabaret Series just for the adults.  Our next Cabaret is just for the girls! Kristin Pacelli, Sandi Oshaben, and our own Caren Hearne will bring the house down with fantastic songs, silly stories, and of course beverages! April 20 and 21!

And you know what that means!!  It means that every penny of your donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!


And donating to Mariposa helps us to continue to offer professional theatre to you, our patrons. Whether we provide Theatre for youth and families programs, or one of our cabarets, or even our educational classes, Mariposa is striving to present the best quality product.  But we can't do it without you. 


Ticket sales only account for approximately 30% of our revenue.  We depend upon donations, sponserships, and grants to fund our programs; pay the rent, the utilities, the actors, the designers, the technical staff, the instructors. We are looking to raise $10000 by May 31!  Can you help?  Because we need you!

A Diva is Always the Life of the Party

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!
