Inclusion and access are core values at CCT. We believe, and research supports, that access to high-quality theatre arts learning experiences is essential to enhance individual development and improved functioning in school, work, and community settings. We know exposure to the theatre can increase a child’s capacity for empathy, ultimately cultivating a more accepting society.
