Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Arts Education, Children's Museums, Theater

Mission: Founded in 1989 as an all volunteer group, we are now moving to having a paid staff and are looking for a permanent home and performance space. We teach all aspects of the theater arts to children ages 6 to 18 and give them a chance to crew and perform in mainstage productions rehearsed for two months and seen by up to 2,000 paying customers. Although skilled adults are involved at every stage, our philosophy is to teach the kids how to do their jobs and then turn them loose with that responsibility.

Programs: The organization operates a community theatre whereby it produces 3-4 main stage performances each year.

outreach programs in the greater lansing area to promote children's theatre within the community

All-of-us has been a major part of my life. I have always loved it and I didn't even realize how much time I spent there until I moved and found my self just sitting around. All-of-us is such an amazing program thanks to them I have learned so much. The skills they have taught me have gotten me immediate respect from my current towns directors and theater managers. I started in summer show for fun when I was nine and became a year rounder. I used to hate doing crew but I came to love working backstage even more than being onstage. Seeing other small theater groups now I realize how well organized and professional All-of-us is. I admit, I cried after my last show and always try to get back and help. I have made life-long friends at all-of-us. It has become like a second family to me. I would go back and do it all over again a million times!
