LONG CREEK THEATER PROGRAM
In addition to our regular theatre productions, WHTC has successfully planned and implemented an acting program at the Long Creek Youth Development Center (Southern Maine's juvenile jail) in South Portland. WHTC teaches major Shakespeare plays at Long Creek, which culminate in performances for the whole facility, family, friends and peers. Past projects have been Hamlet, Othello, "A Hip-Hop Romeo and Juliet" and "MCJC; Julius Caesar."
WHTC has received funding from the Maine Arts Commission, The Maine Humanities Council, The Maine Community Foundation, The Maine Charity Fund, The Rines Thompson Fund and The Margaret Burnham Chartable Trust for this program.
