A platform for fostering the creative potential of all children. We all want to know that the world we live in is possibly bigger than we realize. That there is more that exists for us….a sense of awe. We want to give kids a chance to experience magic, and to believe and know that they have not yet begun to touch their capabilities or experience what the world has in store for them.  We want to give kids more. Through theatre.  
And we need your help.

Building Heights/Building Rox represents a group of CH-UH School District parents supported through the Heights Middle and Roxboro Elementary PTAs, both of which are dedicated to facilitating a safe, inclusive, community-focused school environment for all students through outreach and programming. While traditionally Building Rox has impacted students at RoxEl and Rox Middle, our current project seeks to foster the creative potential of a broader elementary audience throughout the district.

Ensemble Theatre, housed on the Coventry P.E.A.C.E Campus, is dedicated to the responsible production of works that celebrate the human spirit.  Their guiding principles include a commitment to non-traditional casting and to providing culturally diverse programming that speaks to issues of contemporary life. Educational and outreach activities impact youth and underserved populations through classes as well as resident and touring performances.

Using criteria developed by Buliding Heights/Buliding Rox and Ensemble Theatre, we successfully completed our second camp this summer! This year's camp ran from July 16th to August 3rd and culminated in a performance in the Alma Theatre at Cain Park on Saturday August 4th, 2018.  This camp, led by Ensemble Theatre, offers a yearly summer opportunity to children in the district who may not otherwise be exposed to a rich, theatre arts experience. 

We would like to acknowledge and thank those who are supporting us for our second summer!
