Creative and Artistic Directors Robin Barson and Jeannie Sensale met in 1999 and discovered a shared passion, not only for the theatre, but also for a style of teaching children and enriching cultural education through the Arts. For the past decade they shared a common goal, to open a unique Children’s Theatre Company in South Florida. Collectively, Ms. Barson and Ms. Sensale have spent 9 seasons running and teaching theatre camps and classes throughout South Florida including Theatre Arts Camp at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Actor’s Playhouse in Coral Gables, the Performance Project of Davie, Florida Grand Opera and Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center (SMDCAC). Public school theatre includes over 7 years with the Miami Dade Public School System at Ammons Middle School.
