Woodford Theatre Young Artists
Theatre education matters. Woodford Theatre Young Artists (WTYA) are a selected ensemble of musical theatre students exposed to professional, intensive training, performance opportunities and growth experiences, designed to strengthen their talents and prepare them for pursuing musical theatre in college and professionally. Your donation supports WTYA educational programming, guest artists, competitions and performances.
The Girl Project
The mission of The Girl Project is to empower teenage girls to challenge the misrepresentation of women and girls in contemporary American media culture. Now in its third year, The Girl Project provides girls with a safe, creative environment where they discuss how the misrepresentation of girls and women affects their social interactions, body image, and self-esteem. The Girl Project introduces participants to female artists who serve as their teachers and mentors, leading them in monthly multi-media, dance, spoken word, movement, vocal music, and visual art workshops. These workshops are designed to facilitate girls' creation of a final theatrical performance. By participating in the workshops and presenting their creative work in a final performance, participants in the Girl Project work together to raise their voices against unrealistic media images and thereby gain the confidence they need to set long-term goals, develop positive relationships and social circles, and live a healthier lifestyle.
