Blue Water Theatre Company- Where Youth Find Their Voice.

We're raising $30,000 for general operating expenses in November-December 2022 to provide space and resources for classes and rehearsals.


Through the collaborative, innovative experience of live theater, Blue Water Theatre Company (BWTC) emboldens youth to unlock and empower their authentic voice - guided by empathy, wonder, and adventure.


BWTC seeks to transform approaches to theatre making and education for and with youth in spaces where they can safely and confidently be bold, take risks, and challenge the world around them.
