TTCD'S BEGINNINGS AND FUTURE

What is TTCD?

Teen Theatre Company of Danville is a theatre company founded in Danville, IL by a group of teens dedicated to theatre. TTCD is performed, directed, and upheld entirely by teens.

How does it work?

TTCD has many adult supervisors that will aid us on our legal journey of owning a great theatre company, but everything else is ran by us teens. This website? Made by a teen. These photographs? Taken by teens. All of our documents and forms? Written by teens. Our rules? Written by teens.

"What does TTCD mean to you?"

"I wanted to show adults in the community that us teens have power. We have the power to start something amazing. I also wanted a place for teens to feel they belong. At this age, teens can feel lost or alone. So I wanted to provide a place where they can feel comfortable and welcome," Jerry Strain, one of TTCD's Board Member

"What do you think about TTCD so far?"

"I think TTCD is already a great place for us teens to just be ourselves and I'm so excited to be able to share that with the community!" Gabi Hughes, TTCD's Marketing Chair

"I'm so excited to be a part of TTCD! I cannot wait to make things with my friends and colleagues and show the community everything we young people can do to make it better!" Alexis Nichols, TTCD's Secretary
