Selah Theatre Project is an all volunteer, not-for-profit organization fiscally sponsored and resident theatre program of the Youth Development Center. Executive Director La Tasha Do’zia -Earley produced the company's first children’s show in 2012 with a small budget, but lots of support from family and friends. Selah Theatre Project has since become the leading year-round dramatic arts education programming in the northern Shenandoah Valley.
Selah Theatre Project provides the opportunity to create theatre together in an educational, supportive, and professional environment for all walks of life. We produce 8 seasonal productions involving our four companies: Selah Teen Ensemble, Selah Young Actors Ensemble, Colored People Repertory Ensemble and Community Theatre Ensemble. Selah offers pre-professional theatrical training for teens and theatre classes for kids of all ages. We provide affordable artistic opportunities to students regardless of ability to pay.
