About the Theatre Company



County Superintendent of Schools Jim Vidak and former Assistant Superintendent of Instruction Sally Bakke created the Theatre Company in 1998. The goals of the company include teaching solid fundamental theater skills, instilling professional discipline and work ethics, establishing career connections and giving young people a safe and challenging place to create and express themselves.

The Theatre Company offers a constant stream of workshop and performance opportunities for students throughout Tulare County. Check our workshops listing for current offerings. In addition, Theatre Company staff members are available to visit school sites to work with existing theater classes or provide extracurricular programs.
