Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Mudlark Theater Company is a children's theater company dedicated to providing professional, affordable, theatrical training to children 6- 18 years of age in a supportive environment that empowers children as individuals and artists. From our founding as an organization, we have envisioned a place where young people could hone their skills working with professional artists, have a safe place to explore creatively, and be taken seriously as artists no matter what their age. One of our goals as an organization is to help people appreciate the unique power of children's theater and the contributio0n uit can make to public discourse. We believe children's theater can and should be enjoyable and interesting for the broader public, not just the friends and family of the actors. While it lacks the polish of grown-up theater, good children's theater can achieve a level of honesty, integrity, and joyful energy that is rarely seen elsewhere.
Mudlark Children's Theater puts on 5-6 mainstage shows each year at various venues in Evanston. Each show has a cast of 15-25 children with six performances over two week-ends. In addition, Mudlark provides after-school theater classes in eight Evanston Schools and offers six to eight summer workshops ranging from focused one-week sessions to a four-week drama camp.
