Theatrix Youtheatre Society is proud to acknowledge Prospera Credit Union for your generous contributions to our continued performing arts programs for children in the lower mainland. Special thanks to Jayne Perrault and Peter Radonjic for your support.
Theatrix Youtheatre Society is celebrating 30 years of promoting and encouraging the performing arts for children in the Lower Fraser Valley.
Theatrix Youtheatre founding Artistic Director, Deborah Solberg is handing the reins to Lauren Hillman with succession planning assistance from the City of Port Coquitlam and the board of directors. “It’s time to hang up my directing and producing hat,” says Deborah Solberg. ‘Lauren is brilliant at creating original theatre and the perfect person to build the next 30 years.’
OPAS – Our Online Performing Arts Program, was created out of the need for virtual arts programming caused by the pandemic in 2020. During the height of the pandemic, it included weekly virtual performing arts classes, webinar classes, and additional resources like downloadable plays, and Behind the Curtain, a professional mentoring interview series. Everything was made available temporarily on a pay-what-you-can pricing system.
In 2022, we are no longer seeing the need for the weekly virtual classes but everything else continues to be available. OPAS continues to offer webinars on a pay-what-you-can pricing system, free and low-cost scripts for plays and musicals, free acting scenes and study guides, and our Behind the Curtain series.

OPAS also includes free resources that both educate and entertain. You can find scenes from our original plays for you to use at home, as well as full scripts, and games. And in our video series, Behind the Curtain, kids can watch inspiring interviews with professional performing artists as they tell us how they got to where they are today – and how you can do it too!
