The Island Theater provides theatrical education in the form of Broadway plays and musicals. This is accomplished through workshops, mainstage performances, summer camps, talent shows, and charitable events. As a theatre house, we desire to have a positive influence on the youth of Clay County and surrounding areas, through offering fun-filled workshops for ages five through nineteen. In doing so, we provide children and youth with an alternative to where and how they decide to spend their time. The Island Theater is a place where many within our community call home.
Aside from our amazing volunteers who graciously donate their time; the Managing Directors, the Donors, and the Sponsors, raise money throughout the year to give away scholarships to kids who cannot afford the minimal fee to participate in a workshop. The Island Theater is proud to promote social awareness, education, and change, through producing live-theatrical quality events, while supporting charitable organizations connected to the arts. As a 501C, The Island Theater depends on the generosity of others to maintain a higher level of excellence and for the funding of our operating budget within a fiscal year.
It is our mission to introduce the community to live theater in a manner that creates an opportunity for individuals of all ages to fall in love with the arts. A love that encourages others to become a part of something bigger than themselves. A love that impacts the lives of individuals, in a way that effects positive change in their lives and the lives of others.
