What is Saltworks?
Saltworks is a non-profit, professional arts company which addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children, youth, and families through the creation and performance of contemporary dramatic works.
What we’ve been up to for the past year…
It’s been over a year since we’ve been able to take our assemblies into schools or have classes and camps for our students. We’ve ventured into the virtual world by adapting our K-12 assemblies to a new, online format with two options: prerecorded and live/interactive. It’s been a challenging year but we’re very proud of what we’ve been able to do to keep reaching audiences.
We hope you’ll take a look at our update video below and consider supporting us!
We’ve also partnered with The Social Voice Project to create three radio plays, A Very Covid Christmas, CyranA (a gender bent reimagination of the classic play “Cyrano de Bergerac”), and Imagination Playtime (three classic children’s tales perfect for young audiences). You can find the links to listen below!

Young Actors Studio
An opportunity for our young actors to stretch their performance skills to new levels.
*Classes and camps will resume in Fall of 2021*
Our school assemblies are performed by professional actors and run 45-50 minutes in length.
“The actors kept in communication through the chat with the students and teachers that had logged on to the show. They definitely tried to have the kids engaged by raising hands and entering things in the chat box. Many of them were participating that way which was fun. The masks with clear mouths were good too, so you could see their lips and understand them better when they had them on. We have always enjoyed the shows from your group in the past and were glad that you were able to offer a virtual opportunity this year. You have done a positive job of moving into the world of Zoom.

“The presentation was very appropriate for the current times and I believe it will have an impact on students. The Saltworks group is very good at delivering messages that are relevant, timely, and necessary for young people to hear over and over again.”
