Studies find that the integration of arts in education is successful in improving student attendance, reducing discipline  issues, improving test scores and increasing graduation rates. Source: The Impact of the Arts on Learning, Fiske, 1999.

Our six-week program engages Merced County fourth through eighth grade students in all aspects of a fully-staged theatrical production. Students may perform and/or engage in set building, prop construction, costumes or make-up. Students may also gain global, health and environmental awareness and valuable life skills that transfer to other subject areas.​​
