Our Mission

Serving Scottsdale and surrounding communities, Greasepaint Youtheatre programming is designed to develop the life skills and aesthetic knowledge that Youth will carry with them both as Artists and Audiences of Tomorrow.  Our mission is to provide unique and compelling theatre experiences that educate and challenge young people to stretch the boundaries of imagination and awareness and achieve a positive sense of self. In addition, we consider the nurturing of professional talent in the Valley to be core to our work, providing employment opportunities to more than 50 local artists each season, with an emphasis on hiring alumni of our programs.

Our Philosophy

Greasepaint Youtheatre’s philosophy is to provide child-centered programming, founded in arts curriculum and national standards for the performing arts. This professionally-designed programming, taught by expert teaching artists, creates an environment which provides a safe and open forum for each student interested in experiencing the Arts to personally explore new and exciting forms, while at the same time, building life skills they will display in the community.

Our Programs

Each program will have a purpose, a focus, and serve the community as a whole, while also providing Greasepaint with a population of eager and talented student-performers who will demonstrate those skills by helping create a piece of live theatre.
