Coast Blossom (Teen Leadership)

“Coast Blossom Theatre Company, led by local teenagers, provides educational theatre for the youth of San Diego. We strive to be role models and inspire the actors in our program to grow in a collaborative environment.”

Coast Blossom Theatre Company was started by seven teens, aged thirteen to seventeen, through Trinity Theatre Company’s Teen Leadership Program. We provide educational theatre for the youth of San Diego. The CBTC team strives to be role models and inspire the actors in our program to grow in a collaborative environment. 

We started meeting over Zoom in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic which hasn’t stopped us from making theatre magic happen. Since then we have run virtual summer camps and classes through our partnership with TTC. In the future, the Coast Blossom team will continue to provide online theatre experiences for youth and hopes to someday hold in-person events.
