Oh, what a strange, uncertain, and scary time it is right now across the nation and throughout the world. As theatres and nonprofits everywhere are forced to make difficult decisions and act on what little information we have, I am comforted to know that we truly are all in this together.
While our Summer looked very different this year, I am so proud of the way that team Education rose to the occasion. We released 12 weeks of exciting online content (check it out here); performed an outdoor, site-specific KID Show; and hosted 5 exciting and socially-distanced Summer Day Camps! We are now back in full swing with our exciting Friday Day Camps (socially-distanced, of course!), and it is a joy to be back in Creede School every day with the Elementary and Middle School students!
While things certainly look a little different right now, I can say with absolute conviction that Team Education is staying focused on what is most important- the young people we impact each day. With every choice we make, they stay at the forefront of the decision.
We are in the process of brainstorming some exciting upcoming projects and opportunities for our communities near and far, and we can’t wait to share more information with you in the coming months. In the meantime, don’t forget what Albus Dumbledore said in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – But you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
With Love and Gratitude,
Brittni Shambaugh Addison

Learning through theatre teaches students how to work together, problem solve, and use their imaginations.
