According to their mission statement, the Madera Theatre Project is “committed to inspiring the community to develop their skills, share their unique voices, and collaborate in an interactive supportive and educational environment.”


Ginger Latimer, Artistic Director for this new venture, notes, “It’s been a long time since Madera County has had community theatre, and we are delighted that this new venture will bring it back this summer.”


“We look forward to community participation from all over the Central Valley including students, young people and adults, regardless of their previous theatre skills and experiences,” said Brandon Gilles, Visual and Performing Arts Director at Madera Unified School District.
