Ludus Performing Arts is committed to giving youth a positive experience, while creating quality musical productions. Ludus performers are given the chance to be involved in all aspects of the production process. Experiences may include working on set design, choreography, costume design, creating props, or learning the backstage technical process. Our mentoring and training opportunities offer skills and education that are advantageous for future careers in the performing arts. Ludus performers have gone on to be accepted into prestigious performing arts schools and university programs.
WHAT WE DO
Ludus has a history of welcoming performers and crew from various experience levels and economic backgrounds into a caring, family-oriented theatre community. We take pride in nurturing youth who may otherwise not be given an opportunity to develop to their full potential in musical theatre. In doing so, we have watched performers develop both musical theatre skills and self-confidence. We believe by giving youth an opportunity to develop their potential in musical theatre, we instill young people with a sense of belonging and purpose.
Starting with a small but passionate group of volunteers in 2013, Ludus Performing Arts has since touched the lives of over 500 youth and over 15,000 patrons and supporters. Ludus' reputation has attracted performers from Snohomish, King, Skagit, and Island
counties. Based out of Lake Stevens, WA, Ludus Performing Arts takes pride in partnering with local schools and businesses. In addition, Ludus Performing Arts has volunteered and performed at various community outreach events and nonprofit fundraisers.
