Creative Theatre Experience (CTE) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Your tax-deductible contribution will make CTE programs more affordable for more students, and sustain this valuable and truly one-of-a-kind summer youth theater arts program for students in 1st through 12th grade.

Since 1981, CTE has been giving each child the chance to discover their unique gifts and personal potential. Enjoy our video to see and hear more about our workshops, and discover what’s at the heart of CTE.


Many CTE alumni are now involved in every aspect of theatre, from performing on stage in musicals and plays, to technical stagecraft and music direction. Other former interns and CTE students have gone on to become teachers, influenced in part by their early exposure to working with youth at CTE, and former CTE students who became interns are now part of the faculty at CTE!

We are grateful to our recent CTE sponsors. Sponsorship is another opportunity to support youth in your community!
