"The opportunity to be directly involved in creating art is a rewarding experience for all ages, particularly young people," said Scott Kenison, executive director of Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center.
"Here we have a wealth of experience to share and the space to make these projects possible. Sponsoring Center Stage is very much in keeping with our mission to engage the whole community in the arts," he added.
Through being involved with all aspects of theatrical events, the students will gain confidence and develop greater maturity in dealing with the broader world, Kenison noted.
Center Stage is planning a Festival of Short Plays and will be sending out a call for student authors, actors and directors within the next few months. Its first fundraiser took place Wednesday, and plans are being made for more.
