Jesters Theatre is a safe place to love theatre.
Since 2011, we have been working with kids and teens from Mission and throughout the Fraser Valley, providing a community that supports their creative development and God-given talents. We run multiple programs through the year that have included Summer Camps, Dance Classes, Writing Workshops, Leadership Development Training, and an annual, full scale Production for which we pull out all the stops.
Since its inception, Jesters has raised thousands of dollars for organizations such as the Food Bank, Mission Youth House, Food for the Hungry, The Elevation Project, Operation Christmas Child, and more. One of our goals is to inspire a passion in our youth for helping their neighbours, and showing love in the same way Christ loves us.
All skill and interest levels are welcome here. No matter which path these youth take in their future, at the end of the day, the self confidence and strength of identity that comes from engaging in the Jesters Theatre community produces positive, transferable skills that benefit our kids in all areas of their lives.
The goals of Jesters are to provide:
- A safe place to learn about and experience the love of Christ
- A safe place for developing leaders to grow
- A safe place for personal expression through the performing arts
- A safe place to engage in and give back to the broader community
- A safe place to belong and be celebrated
