Award Winners

As individual volunteers we've already won all kinds of civic, regional and even national awards in the TV/Film and Production Industries. We've also been honored MANY accolades for our charitable services and contributions. We strive to be the best and will aim to bring all of our talents and knowledge together and share them with each and every person who seeks to be a part of this amazing up-coming organization.


Performing Arts Teaching Network (PATN)

Students, working alongside professionals in the entertainment industry, will form a partnership that will work together around a theme to create a performance; gain skills in writing, costume and set design; puppeteering; production; acting and hospitality. In a real-world theatre environment, these young producers, performers and technicians will learn to work cooperatively with each other and with professional staff while given the freedom to let loose their creative energies and work together to build a show from the ground up!
