California Theatre Center

California Theatre Center

California Theatre Center (CTC) is a professional, not-for-profit theatre company founded in 1976. For over thirty years, CTC’s mission has been to create quality theatrical experiences for youth and families, instill an early appreciation of literature and the fine arts in tomorrow’s artists and citizens, and provide outstanding educational opportunities and training in the theatre arts. Our extensive education program, taught by professional actor-teachers who have college degrees in theatre, full-time employment at CTC, and years of experience in their field, includes CTC’s renowned Summer Theatre Conservatory, day- and week-long workshops and residencies, full-length productions, roles for young actors in CTC’s professional shows, outreaches with local schools, and many other programs.

CTC is proud to partner with educators in the Santa Clara Valley and across the West Coast and to provide new opportunities for young people to discover theatre arts. Each year, we present over 400 performances of 11-15 plays expressly for school field trips. CTC also directs productions at Bay Area schools and offers in-class and after-school workshops on a variety of theatre topics. These workshops can be personalized to fit the needs of individual schools and are designed both for schools without theatre departments and also for drama teachers wishing to enhance their current curriculum.
