The Hollow Tree Players believe in the importance of the arts for today's children and believe that theater is one of the primary ways children learn about life. It engages the imagination, presents a virtual reality of a far away land and stimulates creativity. Children can be transported into another era and experience sights and situations that are limitless. Through this virtual experience, educators have an opportunity to integrate the chidlren's theater experience into various lessons throughout their curriculum. History, writing, reading, social studies, art and even math can be enhanced from this experience.

Our group presents two plays annually at the Ligonier Town Hall in Ligonier, Pennsylvania. More than 1000 children and their teachers from area schools attend each of our plays. Net proceeds from play productions benefit agencies and charitable groups serving area children. To date, we have donated over $40,000 to local charities and organizations. Some of the organizations include:

Autism Speaks

Heart Associations

Diabetes Research

Christian Charities
