About Journey

It’s About Transformation

Journey Theater Arts Group encourages and inspires youth to grow into and embrace who God designed them to be.  We believe in the transformational power of Jesus Christ working in us and through us to guide our youth to embrace their identity as a uniquely gifted and talented child of God.

Our goal is to encourage our youth to express their talents and hone their skills so they can take an active role in presenting professional-level youth and community theater throughout the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan area. In Journey, everyone is welcomed into a loving community no matter where they are in life or what experience they have in theater. Here, you’ll find amazing teachers, mentors and friends who cheer for and mentor Journey kids, no matter your level of experience in theater.  Journey is more than just family-friendly theater, it’s family.

Journey’s professional-quality school-year musicals are exclusively cast with kids ages 8-18.  More than 600 area youth conduct 100 performances to bring joy to more than 25,000 ticket holders every year.  The cast, crew and production committees are 100% volunteer. Parents and friends of cast members create costumes, sets, props and more, while youth are mentored to become future technicians and artistic directors.

Everyone is Welcome

Whether you like to work with your hands, your feet, your mind, your voice or your body. Whether you are an athlete, an artist, a musician, or none of the above, Journey is where you will be welcomed with open arms.

For Youth and for You

Journey performs at the highest levels on-stage and off.  With more than 80 classes from drama to dance to improv, 12 school-year shows in four locations and summer community theater, Journey is the most dynamic, well-organized theater arts group in our region.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations.
Psalm 100:1-5

More than live theater - theater that changes lives.
