Who We Are:
Running to Places (R2P) is a nonprofit theatre company for teens that rehearses and performs across the Tompkins County area – hence the name. Our company is made up of about 150 passionate and dedicated youth in grades 6-12 that come together to build community while making great theatre.
The mission of Running to Places is to provide young people with opportunities for theatrical performances in which they are the primary artists and technicians, to contribute to the artistic life of any community of which we may be a part, and to advance the artistic horizons and knowledge of young people in the theatrical arts.
We will continue to develop Running to Places into a sustainable youth organization that produces great theatre in the community featuring local talent. We will anchor young people to the Tompkins County area while growing the next generation of theatre supporters. Our young artists, their families and others involved will experience transformative growth and develop a greater sense of community.
