Our History

The Open Road Theatre was founded by Karen Dieruf-McElvain with the support of committed parent volunteers wanting to fill a need for dramatic, full-length, multi-aged children’s theatre productions  performed by talented North Shore youth. Grades: K-12.

Following the successful productions in 2002-2004, The Open Road Theatre incorporated as a non-profit, theatre arts youth program in November 2004, receiving 501© status in March of 2005.
