Our Vision / Our Mission / Who We Are
The Newhall Family Theatre for the Performing Arts will grow, mature, and adapt to changes in the community, to evaluate the negatives while building a foundation on the positives of society through performance opportunities.
The Newhall Family Theatre for the Performing Arts is organized to introduce the youth and surrounding community to theatre experiences that educate, nurture, and inspire.
Who We Are
From Superintendent, Jeff Pelzel: “Every student in the Newhall School District receives a high quality education of which the arts are an intrinsic part of the core curriculum. Newhall School District acknowledges that exposure to and participation in the multiple arts disciplines:
- strengthens a child’s academic growth and development as an individual
- prepares the child to feel a part of and make a positive contribution to the community.
Thus, sequential instruction in the multiple arts disciplines is scheduled into the school day and included in the Newhall School District budget year after year. The Governing Board and the entire Newhall School District community has shown ongoing support of these efforts by investing in the restoration of the Newhall Family Theatre which provides a world-class venue performing arts venue for all to enjoy.”
From Theater Manager, Tom Lund: “The Newhall Family Theatre for the Performing Arts gives the students access to a full size, operational theatre; an experience that I didn’t have until high school. There will be programming that sparks a passion for the arts. The beauty of theatre is that it not only entertains, but also can teach lifelong skills and lessons. Theatre is a living, breathing art form that should be available, accessible and inclusive for all people. That’s what I hope to bring to this wonderful venue.”
