Celebrating 35 years of service, Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre has inspired and empowered millions of students and adults in communities across the United States to make healthy choices. Educational Theatre offers a wide range of award-winning theatrical productions and interactive workshops to schools throughout the Kaiser Permanente footprint.
Using the power of theatre and storytelling, our programs directly connect with students through relatable characters and real-life situations. Audiences see themselves represented onstage in our culturally and ethnically diverse casts allowing them to connect with the narrative and educational messages in a meaningful way. Our actor-educators build on this connection, inspiring students and adults alike to make healthy choices and build stronger communities.
Currently, there are two programs available in every Kaiser Permanente region.
