THEATRE IN THE COMMUNITY 





The Theatre in the Community (TIC) Program at ELAC is a creative way to use theatre to engage your community and neighborhood. The core of the Theater in the Community Program is ELAC Storytheatre, a touring theater troupe that performs for elementary schools, senior centers and community events. Storytheatre produces original plays that entertain but carry a strong social message. Students participate in creative drama workshops at Robert Hill Elementary School and can volunteer for performances and special events at Maravilla Community Service Center.
