Journey Theater Arts Group
It’s About Transformation Journey Theater Arts Group encourages and inspires youth to grow into and embrace who God designed them to be. We believe in the transformational power of Jesus Christ working in us and through us to guide our youth to embrace their identity as a uniquely gifted and talented child of God. Our goal is to encourage our youth to express their talents and hone their skills so they can take an active role in presenting professional-level youth and community theater throughout the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area. In Journey, everyone is welcomed into a loving community no matter where they are in life or what experience they have in theater. Here, you’ll find amazing teachers, mentors and friends who cheer for and mentor Journey kids, no matter your level of experience in theater. Journey is more than just family-friendly theater, it’s family. Journey’s professional-quality school-year musicals are exclusively cast with kids ages 8-18. More than 600 area youth conduct 100 performances to bring joy to more than 25,000 ticket holders every year. The cast, crew and production committees are 100% volunteer. Parents and friends of cast members create costumes, sets, props and more, while youth are mentored to become future technicians and artistic directors.
Due to the breadth of Journey Theater's dynamic programming, our needs also span the gambit; everything from scholarships to technical equipment. Technical equipment enhances the theater experience for patrons and elevate the performance experience for budding young artists. Tech needs include: mic heads, mic belts, walkie-talkie sets, a sound board protective case, feedback destroyers, and spotlights. We also hold as a value to never say "no" to qualified and eager students, so we have ongoing needs to supplement enrollment in the form of scholarships. Monies raised during Give More 24 will go to the general operating fund and then be used for these specific needs as well as other needs that we're confronted with each year.
