Founded in 1969, the Orange County Children's Theater is the oldest, continuous running children’s theatre in Orange County, open to young people from age 5 – 18. They are very proud of our children and many have moved on to professional careers in the theatre, while others have become leaders in business and their communities. Through the auditions process, children are welcome from all social and economic backgrounds. While they are dedicated to training each child in the crafts, and skills required for the theatre, paramount importance is placed on the development of each child’s self esteem, and feeling of belonging at this theatre. Family values are always encouraged, by example, from the staff of volunteers, giving so generously of their time.
