American Southwest Childrens Theatre Company

Now in its 30th year, the award-winning American Southwest Children's Theatre Company presents low-cost afterschool theatre workshops for youth grades 1-6.

Our ASCTC workshops help develop skills in collaboration, creative problem-solving and socialization through a process-oriented and structured program called Creative Drama.

The workshop is lead by nationally-renowned theatre director Larissa Lury, and assisted by upper-level students in NMSU's Elementary Education program.  The cost is only $25 per child for the five week-workshop.
