Neighborhood Work Play Kids Theatre is a non profit organization
Neighborhood Work Play Kids Theatre gives children, 5-9 years old, opportunities to integrate into their lives what they are learning in the classroom. Students are nurtured to be critical, analytical, and creative thinkers. Our multi-age grouping allows students to encourage, teach, help and support each other as brothers and sisters. Our objective is to help students realize that they are in charge of what and how much they learn in school and the world around them.

Staff and Volunteers
2 certified teachers teaching literacy, nutrition and fitness
1 drama instructor, teaching drama and stage design
Our volunteers come from local high schools and colleges as well as the community. We give community service credits to our student volunteers.
Culturally enriching field trips are necessary to our educational mission, which is to nurture students into adults appreciating the arts and different cultures. Our field trips give students opportunities to have fun and learn at the same time without realizing it. Our trips bring classroom learning into real life, giving students the knowledge that learning can take place anywhere not only in the classroom setting. It enables students to develop positive social interaction as they enter different environments or settings. It teaches students how to behave appropriately as members of a team.
