OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Original Kids Theatre Company enriches and celebrates the lives of young people through the arts, providing them with opportunities to mature and to learn positive values through a variety of theatre experiences in a safe and challenging environment.
OUR CORE VALUES
Original Kids is an organization built on values. We feel that it is important to incorporate our values into all aspects of Original Kids.
We believe in creating a safe environment both physically and emotionally for our youth by nurturing a positive and supportive environment. Original Kids can feel safe to be themselves.
Passion for the Arts.
We all share a common passion for the arts. Original Kids are able to develop their performance skills of course, but also their appreciation and understanding of the arts through our rehearsal process.
We create an environment where youth can try new experiences whether they are on stage, backstage, selling tickets, or training fellow youth. Throughout the many areas of Original Kids our youth will develop literacy skills, social skills, and critical thinking skills.
Original Kids Theatre Company is a performing arts organization where young people can grow and flourish without the fear that taking a risk is wrong or dangerous. It’s a total theatre experience where our youth can blossom as performers. The learning extends further than that because Original Kids is an attitude of support and a standard of behaviour. It is an environment in which kids can feel safe expressing themselves without fear of ridicule. After all, they’re among a community of friends. Our carefully chosen artistic staff produce fine results on the stage, while maintaining the natural spontaneity of the child. They nurture a love of the arts by sharing their knowledge and passion for everything they work on. Original Kids Theatre was not formed to create stars because we feel each child already shines in his or her own way. Through exposure to the arts it is our belief that youth will more easily share in the joy of life with a heightened appreciation for themselves and those around them.
