Arts on the Horizon


Arts on the Horizon was founded as a non-profit theater company with a specific focus of providing performances and education programs for young people ages zero to six years old. The arts play an important role in the life of a child, and the results can be seen through the development of their critical thinking skills, self-confidence, and independence. As a theater company intended for young audiences, they strive for excellence and innovation in theater for the very young, to produce and present high-quality theater for young audiences and their families, to look at including classic and contemporary plays in new ways, and focus on clear and accessible storytelling.

Performances are designed to take place in an intimate setting where children not only feel comfortable to learn and explore, but are also able to be an integral part of the performance. With the utmost respect for children’s education and development, Arts on the Horizon delivers, in what may be Kid’s first theatrical performance, entertainment, challenge, and the spark of creativity to enhance the imaginative play in which many children this age engage.

Each education program provides targeted exploration of themes and ideas in order to help children enhance their language development, socialization, and fine and gross motor skills; all within a meaningful, nurturing environment where children can develop their sense of self and increase their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
