Hathaway Brown Theatre Institute (HBTI) is committed to helping young people improve their skills in the performing arts through immersion in a challenging curriculum of drama, dance, music and/or design and the opportunity to participate in fully staged productions.

Along with their growing arts skills and appreciation for the arts in general, our students will gain confidence and socialization skills that will benefit them in their eventual field of pursuit in the world at large.

Participate in the award winning musicals Rent, and/or Oklahoma! or the new non-musical adaptation of Little Women.
