In the summer of 2020 three school pals came together to create Lumina Theatre Company, a collective focused on accessible theater arts education. Our mission is to bring exciting, inventive creative spaces to middle school children. We began with Zoom workshops designed to prioritize Covid-19 safety, and have since developed our programming to include virtual and in-person options. All of programs are free of cost for participants, in alignment with our mission.
Alongside our middle-school education initiative, LTC serves as a community space for artists to hone their craft and experiment with new and innovative forms of theater making.
We offer two introductory options for courses:
Live and Virtual. Our programs are each tailored to the needs of the students. Together we craft a curriculum that reflects their interests and experience, in order to create holistic and engaging work. The courses all culminate with a performance, either virtual or in-person, celebrating and showcasing the work of the participants. The performances are open to friends, family, and community.
In an effort to keep costs of programming free to participants, we are always striving to collaborate with community funding organizations. LTC's work is made possible through the generosity of grants, individual donors, and community partnerships.
