Performing changes lives, our students learn this firsthand.

Our students will tell you that performing a stage play can change their lives. We have seen how the ability to perform on stage improves social skills, the ability to communicate, and the self-esteem of both child and adult students. Actors learn about team work as well as self-reliance. Kids involved in artistic activities also do better in school. And, of course, it’s really fun. Our typical class consists of a group of about 10 students who attend class on a regular basis. Some students continue for years doing theatre and become successful, professional actors, like many of our students have done before. The adults in our classes will attest not only to the entertainment aspect of it, but the spiritual enhancement as well. We are confident that the opportunity of doing theatre at LATA will bring as much joy to new participants as seasoned veterans.
