About Us

Who We Are

Theatre for Kids, by Kids

We are a professional quality community theatre where children can grow and develop into successful and fulfilled adults. We serve children ages 9 months to 18 years, are managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, and staffed by professionals having education, business, and theatrical experience. Kids can take classes, participate in camps, workshops, master classes, playwriting festivals, contests, main stage productions, and more.

Strategic Initiatives


EVCT provides transformative theatre experiences, nurtures creativity, and fosters inclusivity for young people, their families, and the community.


To create an empathic world/universe where everyone belongs.


Our values guide us in making day-to-day decisions to fulfill our mission. We build long term relationships with those who share our values of integrity, passion for excellence, innovation, respect, teamwork, life-long learning, and stewardship.

The 2023-2024 season ushers in EVCT’s 28th year of serving East Valley kids and their families. As a proud founding resident company of the Mesa Arts Center, we are pleased to offer five main stage productions annually in the Nesbitt-Elliott Playhouse.

Managed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors, EVCT has grown from one production and one workshop to an award-winning, perennial education-based children’s theatre, bringing exceptional theatre to the community.


Our Team

An integral part of East Valley Children’s Theatre is its Board of Directors. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Board sets policy and procedures for the operation of the organization, as well as providing fiscal responsibility for the continuing success of EVCT.

What They Say

“Our daughter has definitely experienced a new and different kind of confidence that playing sports could not have provided. As a parent I have observed this in her, as well as other children, in the productions and have been very impressed with the leadership and production effort put forward by EVCT.”
“EVCT has made an extraordinary impact in the community. They have enriched the lives of all the families that have been touched by them, they have produced consistently high-quality productions and have been supportive great friends to the arts.”
“One of the reasons I keep coming back to EVCT is because of the great people there who share the same interests as me and accept me for who I am. When I first performed on the mesa arts center stage, I realized I wanted to be a performer and surround myself with such positive people and a great environment.”
