How We Impact the Community

Cafeteria Kids Theater (CKT) was formed in 2014 as an educational theater program to engage and enrich the lives of children in Napa Valley through the performing arts. We strive to use theater as a vehicle to bridge different ethnicities, backgrounds, and perspectives.

Since our formation, we’ve grown to include full scale musical production, in-school residencies in both public and private schools in Napa Valley, after school classes, acting workshops, holiday workshops, and a variety of summer camps. These offerings are geared towards Napa Valley children ranging from ages 3 – 18.

For youth, skills that are developed during theater programs- collaboration, empathy, improvisation, confidence, leadership- are ones that are often carried throughout the rest of their lives in personal and professional capacities. CKT’s ultimate goal is to give kids and teens the tools they need to live in the world from a place of creativity, compassion, and love.


In every CKT show I did, I learned and grew not only as an actor but as a human being. Aimée and Olivia’s abundance of kindness and knowledge helped shape the person I am today. I am so grateful to have been a part of CKT.
