The VISTA North Texas project would like to welcome our newest partner agency, Plano Children’s Theatre! The mission of North Texas Performing Arts/ Plano Children’s Theatre located in Plano, TX is to develop the character of youth through quality performing arts education and family entertainment. Their vision is to make their programs accessible and desirable to all North Texas families. Their theatres include Plano Children’s Theatre, Frisco Youth Theatre, McKinney Youth Theatre, Fairview Youth Theatre, North Texas Performing Arts- Dallas and Fun House Theatre and Film. They offer after school and summer arts training, major productions, special needs programming, daytime performances for schools, and free community outreach. At North Texas Performing Arts/ Plano Children’s Theatre, children learn responsibility, teamwork, respect, leadership, confidence, accountability, discipline, sociability, language skills and a love of learning.
Plano Children’s Theatre’s VISTA project will begin in November and recruitment has already begun! The Grant Writing VISTA at Plano Children’s Theatre will build capacity through the research of funding opportunities and preparation of grant applications to support their theatres and allow more under served Dallas and Collin County youth to attend arts training programs.
