CAPA’s mission is to foster and inspire excellence in all aspects of the performing arts for children and adults within Cincinnati and its surrounding communities through education and public engagement. There are many schools that students to do not have access to the performing arts. CAPA outreach programs work toward the goal of bringing the arts to underserved schools and communities. Through our generous sponsors and donors - and covering your processing fees on our tuition based programs - we are able to use those funds and partner with schools or organization to bring the arts directly to a school or community.
Mt Airy Elementary - Since 2018, CAPA has been working with Mt Airy Elementary students bringing after school acting classes to their campus. The Mt Airy Theatre Players have performed “A Christmas Carol” and were working on a production of “Alice in Wonderland” before interrupted by Covid-19. When school went online, CAPA pivoted to provided virtual online summer programming, working with a group of students to perform in a specially revised version of “Little Women”. Set in current day and vernacular the students worked on this over the summer, on line, and plan to perform in the fall of the new school year. CAPA will resume in person programming as soon as we are able.
Boys and Girls Club, Price Hill location - In 2019 CAPA collaborated with the Boys and Girls Club and brought after school programming in the form of a recitation and acting class. The group performed at their annual holiday party in December 2019. Currently, CAPA was working on a ‘Dancing Through The Ages” program that was specifically designed for this group as a different dances and narration throughout time.
Artsville, located in Madisonville - In collaboration with Artsville, CAPA formed Arts Academy an after school program that served all school age children in the Madisonville community. Students worked in a variety of art forms: poetry, drawing and singing and performed at Artsville's annual holiday 'Breakfast with Santa' event. CAPA works hand in hand with Artsville to create programming that will appeal to children in the community. Last summer, CAPA held a Shakespeare week long camp that was a combination of children in and outside and the community and was a big success.
