DANCE. SING. DISCOVER YOURSELF.
Uptown Music Theatre aims to expose children and adults to meaningful stories through an entertaining medium. Didactic in nature, our musicals teach young people about finding common ground and achieving peaceful resolutions. The story lines draw inspiration from folklore, history, literature, and the distinctive landmarks and cultural traditions of New Orleans. Using the ancient art of storytelling, we create shows that address modern concerns and give voices to all community members.
