Who can join the Sama Sama Summer Workshops?

The Sama Sama Summer Workshops are aimed towards youth of ages 13-24. Even if you have no experience with theater and the arts, if you are interested in learning and meeting new people, you can join the workshops.

What are we going to learn?

Through the eight sessions, we will learn how to tell stories through theater, arts, music, and dance. We will be doing a lot of fun games that will make you feel comfortable in performing. We will also have field trips to and activities to get to know each other and our community better.

How much do I have to pay?

All the workshops are FREE. All we need from you is your commitment to learning new skills and meeting new people. Bring your friends too! Donations are always welcome to help us pay for the materials.

What else can I get out of it?
