Founded in 1993 as The Children’s Theatre Project ’93, Clinton County Kids and Company just finished its 28th season. It is dedicated to providing quality dramatic arts experiences for the children and youth of Clinton County regardless of their economic level or special need.
Our mission is to involve and educate young people through the arts so that they develop creativity, cultural awareness, team building skills, and self-esteem. The Clinton County Kids & Company is a non-profit, grant-driven organization under the direction of Lois A. Hock, Professor of Theatre at Wilmington College. She is currently the managing director for the organization and taught theatre for more than 43 years.
The organization provides live theatrical performances with local children and youth, professional artists who teach workshops for children, and live performances by professional artists. The live performances provide Clinton County children and their families with theatrical productions, which are both educational as well as enjoyable. Each local performance is provided free-of-charge and is marketed to the children and youth of Clinton County as well as surrounding counties. Each production educates children on the techniques of performance and stagecraft. Many children and their parents participate in the construction and painting of the settings and costumes for the plays.
