Uptown Music Theatre -- Dianne Ricks, New Orleans
Uptown Music Theatre's approach to theatre aims to expose children and adults to meaningful stories through an entertaining medium. We believe the dramatic arts have the power to change the hearts and minds of young people and empower them to be their own person. Our arts programs are not only about learning "how” but also about cultivating wholeness in young people by helping them to tap into their own artistic passions and gifts. By sharing our stories through theatre, dance, and music, we hope to bring healing to the New Orleans community and beyond.
