Mission and History

  • Mission and History


Youth theatre productions were initiated in 2001 by Sandy Machette. For the first three years, a single show was produced which featured youngsters of all ages. In 2004, separate Drama Camps were held for youngsters of various age groups…. generally pre-teens and teenagers. Each group presented their own play.

Sandy Machette was the sole director of all Drama Camp presentations through 2010.

Since 2010 Pinewood Players has employed a number of talented Drama Camp Administrators to carry on the mission of the program. In 2018 the camp reverted to a single 3 week long camp open to children ages 7 through 18 years of age.


The mission of our Drama Camps is to provide activities to develop:

Creative imagination

Individual confidence

Group cooperation

Performance skills

An appreciation and enjoyment of all aspects of theater
