Cafeteria Kids Theater

Cafeteria Kids Theater

What We Do:

Performing arts set the stage for children and families to develop and celebrate creativity, inclusion, and compassion. Acting students improve public speaking skills and build trust, confidence, empathy, and self-esteem. We support and nurture this expanding and affirming process through drama classes, camps, and productions. Ages 3 to college.

With the closing of theaters and in-person instruction, we have been conducting all of our classes and camps virtually over Zoom since March of 2020. Our goal is to continue providing outlets and opportunities for creative expression at a time when young people are feeling isolated, alone, and in trauma.

We’ve found that our virtual classes offer a way for students to stay connected with each other and to continue important social interactions. From traditional theater/improvisational games to working with scripts, from choreography to singing, we have had tremendous positive feedback from students and parents alike.

Other Ways to Help:

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Distribute show/camp or class posters
  • Share classes and events via social media
  • Usher during performances
  • Serve dinner to actors during Tech Week

Donations Needed:

  • 3-ring binders (1-Inch)
  • Boxes of pencils
  • Pink erasers
  • Highlighters
  • Boxes of Crayons/Crayolas (24 colors)
  • Construction paper
  • “Scotch” tape
  • Glue sticks


As a parent, my deepest gratitude to CKT for helping our girl feel so connected, motivated and happy. It is magic … as if they have a secret pocket of fairy dust somewhere.
