What does THRIVE do?
THRIVE partners students, community members, business owners and performing arts professionals to create & stage live theater; write, record & perform modern music, and develop & produce unique video projects.
THRIVE was birthed in the summer of 2015 when Streetsboro Theatre director, Jim Boardwine & his creative team, and Streetsboro Theatre Booster Club president, Michelle Madden & her members, decided to take the work being done for their excellent and unique high school/community performing arts program, to the next level. Having won numerous state and national awards, designed cutting-edge curriculum, teamed students, schools, businesses, communities, and performing arts professionals, Boardwine and the group felt ready to take the leap, forming their own 501(c)(3) professional theater, modern music, and film company.
