At El Dorado Musical Theatre, we understand that we are not just in the theater business. We’re in the youth development business.
At first glance, it is easy to miss. We produce a number of major shows each year. There are audiences, performances, and tickets, not to mention a lot of singing, dancing, and acting.
We have won many awards. There have been many standing ovations.
But those things are not our proudest accomplishments.
Our greatest source of pride is the overwhelming deluge of stories from parents and performers. Each details how the EDMT experience helped that young person build greater confidence to succeed in life.
We know that some of our performers will go on to have Broadway careers. What is even more important are the 99% of our performers who will go on to greater success in life because of their time with EDMT.
Theater is the vehicle we use to build confidence. The ovations, the accolades, and the smiling faces are the bonus our performers receive along the way.
