Jester Educational Theater brings our musical theater heritage to life by exploring performance disciplines, enriching curricula, and bridging cultures.
The importance of art in education and human development is well-established, and high-poverty schools are historically underserved in many areas, not the least of which are the arts. The kids in these schools often don’t get as much art as they need, especially in comparison with schools funded well enough to provide a rich array of arts experiences.
Jester Educational Theater works to lessen this disparity in arts education through providing engaging musicals in math and social studies in Title One grade schools. The kids we serve not only learn math and social studies, but see a professionally-produced original musical with live musical accompaniment right in their own school.
JET plays an important role both on stage and off–join with us to do this important work!
