Project Description

Oakland Children’s Fairyland: Youth Theatre Program

Funded by Kathy Roberts and Aaron Loeb

The Youth Theatre program at Fairyland provides students with 8 months of theater instruction and interactive public performances of original musicals. Using original scripts and music based on stories from around the world, the youth performers truly shape their performances and take ownership of their shows. The students are divided into 3 casts for 3 separate plays, each of which is performed 16 times throughout the summer. Students also have the opportunity to perform in the Fairyland holiday play for an additional 2 months of instruction and performances. Participants also gain valuable experience as park ambassadors and mentorship skills by performing for and helping younger park attendees.
