The NOLA Project’s Education wing is designed to fulfill a fundamental component of the company’s not-for-profit mission: to expand the minds, hearts, and creativity of our New Orleans community. Through conservatory style training, youth summer theatre productions, a theater for young audiences school touring production, and community partnerships, our Education wing enriches the artistry of The NOLA Project through connectivity.

We are excited to be able to offer this ensemble production for young people hungry for performance opportunities and live peer interaction! We will follow all Covid-19 safety protocols and limit our cast to 20 students max. And this year we are excited to invite up to 3 student design apprentices to work with our professional designers on the production. You can read more about the program, our protocols, and register below!

It’s a great way of exposing kids to the arts in a fun, engaging, and thought-provoking way.  We intend to keep up this tradition for a long time to come.

I love working with The NOLA Project. They helped me grow as an artist and as a person.
