Center Theatre Group's education programs support the next generation of theatregoers, artists, and artisans, encouraging them to learn more about themselves, the world, and the arts. Through workshops, events, discussions, and other programs, we encourage, support, and connect young people with theatre, and with one another.

We also support educators and schools through a variety of programs and resources designed to bring theatre into the classroom, bring students to the theatre, and improve the quality of arts education for all students.

Education has been an integral part of our work since 1971, when we launched our programming for young people as a means of amplifying the diminishing state of arts education programming in Southern California. Each year, our programs reach thousands of students around the region.
