Summer at the Center Sizzles

Center President Terry Dwyer and Vice President, Education Talena Mara with participants
Thirty-five high school-aged young people participated in this year’s Summer at the Center program for at-risk, underserved youths. SATC is a two-week program of musical theater classes conducted by professional artists to help empower these wonderful kids overcome what seem like insurmountable odds. Through the power of the performing arts, they learn self-esteem, build confidence, find alternative ways to deal with challenges and give their lives a new start. The program culminates in performances that demonstrate the fun and thrill of live performance – and here are just a few photos from Friday, July 27th opening night.
