Laguna Playhouse has launched an innovative new program, Our Stories! This powerful initiative utilizes workshop settings led by specially-trained teaching artists for individuals to tell their story through the Arts. Through a variety of artistic methods (including playwriting, spoken word, painting, sculpting, music, and more), each participant explores an aspect of their lives, family, or culture that they want to share.
Laguna Playhouse Education & Outreach Programs are built upon more than 50 years of providing award-winning Youth Theatre and Educational Outreach in Orange County. Our Stories engages participants to create original dramatic works, using their own life experiences as inspiration and catalyst to strengthen their own health and well-being, strengthen community connections, and envision a better future for all.
The Our Stories program, and all Fine Arts and other workshop materials, are offered free of charge through funding from the Orange County Health Care Agency for individuals aged 15 - 24. Laguna Playhouse is excited to share the mental wellness benefits that are gained through experience with the Arts. Once participants have engaged in the workshops, they are also provided with a list of free mental health resources in Orange County, as we work to reduce the stigma of discussing mental health.
