Blue Water Theatre Company elevates youth through theatre arts education.
Blue Water Theatre Company is a place where youth discover their authentic voice through innovative, collaborative theater experiences. Guided by empathy, wonder, and adventure, we create safe spaces for them to take risks, be bold, and challenge the world around them.
