Be Yourself While Being Someone Else! - About Us
The After School Players -
OUR MISSION: At AfterSchool Arts, we believe in helping children discover and nurture their talents in a safe and creative after school environment, while offering opportunities for enrichment and increased confidence. We strive to start kids on a journey, a destination to discovery about themselves, their abilities, and what they are capable of achieving. 


THEATER FOR AND BY KIDS!

OUR STRATEGY: We jump start them by encouraging, inspiring, and teaching them to believe in their passions. Their challenge, if they choose to accept it, is believing and building confidence in their God-given talents. Our educational arts programs, including theater, music, movement and art, are a green light on their lifelong road to success.

YOUNGSTOWN'S ONLY PROGRAM DEDICATED TO CHILDREN.

THE DUBLIN GRANGE THEATRE: Our theatre, affectionately known as the Dub, is a renovated building constructed in 1921. It was the home to the Dublin Grange, an association of farmers who held meetings there for over fifty years. Ask anyone in Canfield, and most likely they've been in the Dub for a concert, recital, exercise class or party.

Our goal is to continue this tradition by offering delightful children's theater productions based on classic literature. We also offer studio and rental space for birthday and graduation parties, bridal and baby showers and other milestone events.
 
DID YOU KNOW THAT: According to the U.S. Department of Education, the arts are essential to every child's education. Experiencing and making works of art benefit students in their intellectual, personal, and social development.
