“It’s not just about producing an amazing show; it’s about teaching people that they can create something that is of worth for the community at large.”

Ars Creo was created in 2009 by Zack Merritt and Ashleigh Gill. The group is composed entirely of volunteers with a simple dedication to the art of theater. These individuals seek to serve as an outlet of creative force for those in the community (and surrounding communities) who have an interest in any of theater’s many facets, while also providing a rare opportunity for those in their communities to experience original, high quality art at no charge. It is an example of the power of a small group of talented individuals to change their society by joining forces in creativity, dedication, and selfless artistic passion.
