Since its inception in 2002, the Prince Theatre Foundation has enjoyed success in various community endeavors:

  • The Garfield Center for the Arts programming engages the whole PLAYMAKER- physically, mentally and artistically – providing practice in the areas of improvisation, movement, character development, self presentation, script building, critical thinking, and collaborative problem solving. 
  • Providing quality educational, enriching experiences in the arts for children and adults, such as: Playmakers’ Summer Camp, Hedgelawn multi-cultural performance series, Artists-in-Residence Programs and after school drama programs in Kent County Public Schools and Wye River Upper School.

Both the theatre, and the foundation that calls it home, are recognized and valued as a unique community center for the arts on the Upper Eastern Shore.  The Garfield Center for the Arts programming engages the whole PLAYMAKER- physically, mentally and artistically – providing practice in the areas of improvisation, movement, character development, self presentation, script building, critical thinking, and collaborative problem solving.
 

PLAYMAKERS AT CAMP

Summer Camp at the Garfield Center for the Arts is provided for youth in two different age groups (see details below). The summer camp program runs 5 weeks, culminating in an original final production that includes all participants.
 

PLAYMAKERS IN THE SCHOOLS

The Garfield Center for the Arts collaborates with Kent County Public Schools to provide after school enrichment programs for elementary and middle school students.  In addition, in 2011 the Garfield Center for the Arts extended its outreach to include Wye River Upper School.

The semester-long sessions include practice with improvisation, character development, movement, script-work, teambuilding, critical thinking and communication skills. Each student group prepares a public performance for family and friends.
