"Blue Water Theatre Company has created a sense of community for the kids where they can feel safe and be part of something bigger than themselves. The sense of community and friendships at BWTC is vitally important to my child." - BWTC parent

2021/22 is Blue Water Theatre Company's 15th season! 

Whether you are a BWTC partipant, parent, or patron, thank you for helping to fill these last 15 seasons with:

- countless opportunities for our student casts and crew to shine, on and off stage.

- talented artistic leadership, guiding young artists to grow and flourish.

- lifelong friendships formed and memories made.

- bright stage lights, moving song and dance numbers, and countless standing ovations. 


The last year and a half have been challenging for everyone, but most would agree that young people have especially suffered. At BWTC, we are proud to say that we were able to navigate the pandemic months by adapting our programming and keeping our focus on what makes BWTC a special place – the community. Through small-group classes, live-streamed cabaret performances, small cast plays, and an outdoor Block Party, BWTC remained an outlet for student actors to safely connect, grow, and create art together.

This spring and summer, as we were able to safely resume larger shows for larger audiences, the smiles under the masks were impossible to hide. Even a global pandemic cannot stop art – and perhaps, especially now, we are all in need of its healing power.


Since 2007, Blue Water has provided a welcoming community and a safe place for young people to take risks and grow - as performers, as speakers, as artists, and as people. At Blue Water, a new generation of artists and communicators is being created and nurtured every day.

Some words about Blue Water from our student actors and their parents:

  • "I could write a whole essay about Blue Water Theatre Company, and how much of a light it is in my life."
  • "I was afraid to open myself up and express who I was. Blue Water came into my life and cracked my shell when no other place could."
  • "Blue Water brings out the best in everyone."
  • "It’s not just an average theatre company, it’s a community. It has great productions and is so fun."
  • "Witnessing the love in the Blue Water community motivates me to be the person I am today. "
  • "Professional, fun, accepting, high quality staff, growing organization."
  • "Thank you for creating this one-of-a-kind experience for kids. It is having a huge impact on them."
  • "Outstanding job!!  The kids LOVE being there which is a tribute to the community you are fostering. Thank you."
