What We Do

TRYPS (Theatre Reaching Young People & Schools) is a year-round children's theatre. Our mission is to teach children about the performing arts, reach children who might never see live theatre, and inspire children to find their own creative voice.

Why We're Great

TRYPS creates a safe and creative environment where children build character and skills that will last a lifetime--leadership, ability to problem-solve, creative thinking, public speaking, teamwork, and confidence. We believe in every child. Period.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

TRYPS provides training for children ages 10 months through college in the Mid-Missouri region. We never turn a child away due to financial need through payment plans and tuition assistance.
