Experiences to Carry Through Life
The RMRT Youth Theatre Program’s mission is to provide Grand County youth, ages 7 to 18, with an educational, cultural and empowering life experience through participation in a theatre workshop. Directed by critically acclaimed teaching artists from around the country, each program culminates in performances in which participants engage in all phases of theatrical production.
