Front and Center Theatre Productions, Inc. is a 501c3 organization dedicated to providing free instructional filmmaking, theatre arts and film scoring to inner city teens in Los Angeles, California and Atlanta, Georgia. It is the mission of Front and Center to provide an artistic alternative, through performance, to juveniles, resulting in an effective reduction in delinquency, crime, drug abuse and gang activity which exists within the urban communities, while simultaneously relieving parents/guardians of additional financial stress through Front and Center’s free programs. Increasing literacy and academic credit recovery for at risk students has been proven to be a positive factor in building self esteem.
