They envision The Foothill Theatre Company as a creative and dynamic institution where artists and audiences, from throughout our region and beyond, can come together to encounter a variety of high-quality theatrical experiences in multiple venues.
Their mission is to create theatre, produced within the context of a professional artistic ensemble, which entertains and challenges audiences; to advance the art form; and to bring together people of diverse beliefs through the shared experience of live theatre.
The Foothill Theatre Company is committed to working with educational and community institutions to provide access to, and understanding of, the art of theatre. We are dedicated to education and training in theatre arts for youth. Our many educational and outreach programs include our Student Matinee Series, Classroom Workshops, Artist Residencies, a Summer High School Apprenticeship, our Shakespeare Camps at Lake Tahoe in August and in Grass Valley in September, selected Open Rehearsals for high school drama students, Talkbacks, and Seminar Night.
In addition, they are working with UC Davis and Sierra College to provide intern programs on both the graduate and undergraduate levels, to allow career-minded theatre students in all disciplines (acting, directing, design, etc.) an opportunity to work in a professional environment.
