In creating Outreach programs for underserved populations, Theatre Arlington hopes to narrow the gap between what is necessary in arts education programs and what is available to all youth in this area.

ACT UPS (Applied Creative Thinking Using Performance Skills)

Camp Be a Star
A week long theater camp for homeless and transitional housing children in Arlington. A partnership with the Arlington Independent School District, this unique camp teaches theatrical and communication skills and helps improve self-esteem and confidence.
TAG Players (Theatre Arlington Guild Players)
Fourteen energetic, outgoing and creative individuals, over 50 years of age, provide reader’s theater entertainment to nursing homes, social meetings and other events.
Each season, scores of tickets are donated to other non-profits for their raffles, silent auctions, and other fundraising efforts.
Tickets to family are provided to the underserved in our community. We have donated to the Boys & Girls Club, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Arlington ISD, Woman’s Shelter, Mission Arlington, AIDS Service of North Texas and the Arlington Public Library.
Deserving and need-based students are awarded a scholarship to register for our theater school.
