Local children’s theatre fostering creativity in youth

How Around the Curtain Children’s Theatre is keeping kids in theatre

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY LIVING) - For many children, the theatre is a space where they can be themselves. It is a place where they find acceptance and support. The children at Around the Curtain Children’s Theatre have not only found a creative space but have also found a family.

What is Around the Curtain?

“Around the Curtain has reached countless children and families across North Alabama and Southern Tennessee through our theatrical and educational programs. Theatre is a method of expressing and resolving emotions; expressing ourselves; exploring wishes, facing fears, and reaching dreams; building confidence and cooperative capabilities; and discovering new cultures, thoughts, and stances – all of which is crucial to a child’s development.”
