By creating accessible and inclusive arts programing for children we are making sure that the arts are equitable within our community. Statistics show that children engaged in extracurricular arts programs fare better in life. Theater is a communal activity that brings individuals together to work towards a common goal, that fact is just one of the many reasons why children engaged in the performing arts become great communicators, advocates and community leaders.


Anna Kate & Andy are warm, kind and inviting of all students whatever their level of experience is.  They celebrate children's individual creativity and encourage collaboration amongst students. My children thoroughly enjoyed their experience with The Jewel Box Children's Theater and will continue to participate in their programs. Beth (parent)

My child looks forward to classes every week and has learned so much, due to the personal attention and feeling of fun the Jewel Box Theater created. Kate (parent)

Jewel Box helps my daughter interact with other students more. My daughter is super shy. - parent

We have had an amazing experience with Jewel Box. The staff is friendly, kind, knowledgeable, and most of all they listen to the children. They have an extraordinary amount of patience and they take the time to listen to the children's ideas and put them into action. With Jewel Box, my kids are able to fully use their creativity and make their ideas real. They are a bright light in this community, and we are honored to be a part of it. Rose (parent)

We are so grateful for JBCT!  Anna Kate and Andy and their staff have the most remarkable ability to work with children, creating an environment of inclusivity, creativity, respect, fun, and love.  My children have gained so much more than a theatrical education from Jewel Box; they've made deep connections, built self confidence, and made wonderful lasting memories.  Thank you!" Courtney (parent)

They are kind, caring, patient and passionate people who go above and beyond to make the kids feel included and safe while teaching them more than musical theater. They are incredible with working with the parents and families as well which makes JBCT the cream of the crop! Devin (parent)
