Open Hand Theater

After School Programs

Open Hand Theater has partnered with schools and social service agencies for over 30 years, providing active hands on after-school experiences for children. Programs are designed to provide for a range of needs within these agencies to create a professionally led arts experience for their children. Program models include the drop in center, the once a week after school program, or the creation of a children’s theater company.

Open Hand's North Side Youth Theater

Open Hand Theater works its magic in community centers throughout the north side neighborhood.

Beginning with creative play and puppet construction, Open Hand Theater programs strive to present a process that builds from week to week and enhances cooperation and cohesion within the group.




North Side Youth Theater  is funded by Onondaga County Department of Aging & Youth with sponsorship support from Saint Joseph's Hospital Health Center.
