Launched in 2017, Columbia Center for the Arts’ year-round Children’s Theatre Program provides vibrant performing arts for our community with the vision of Acting Artistic Director, Sullivan Mackintosh, and sponsorship by Maureen Higgins and Sakura Ridge. CCA actively engages youth and families of the Columbia River Gorge in the inspirational world of live Theatre.
CCA began it’s first Teen Apprenticeship Program in 2019. This program aims to provide theatrical training for teens in the Columbia River Gorge. Its purpose is to create a supportive ensemble of skilled, professional teen collaborators who are knowledgeable in a variety of theatrical disciplines and ready to take on leadership roles within CCA Children’s Theatre and other environments.
