The Dixie Youth Theatre is designed to provide a distinctive theatre education program that will empower youth to embrace a life of excellence and creativity through their artistic abilities and open doors to imagination and self-confidence. Theatre skills are worthwhile, valuable life skills grounded in discipline and a work ethic that is crucial for any craft. The faculty includes theatre professionals who provide a quality educational and artistic experience for each participant. Experience is gained by weekly classes culminating in a performance on the stage of the Hal Holbrook Theatre.
