Emma Rodgers Learning Laboratory

Established in September 1993, Bishop Arts Theatre Center offer an array of arts education programs year round. The artistic philosophy is to engage students in self-development exercises that apply critical thinking skills, develop the decision-making processes and build vocabulary. Most of the students we serve in our theatre arts programs live in blighted areas of town and are a product of single-parent households.

Last year, forty-nine percent (49%) of these young people were Hispanic, thirty-eight percent (38%) were African-American, and twelve percent (12%) were Caucasian.
