Junior Players has been empowering young voices by providing free, high quality arts programming to North Texas children and youth since 1955. And we’ve only just begun.

Through innovative programs and outreach opportunities, we’re increasing our impact, equipping more students with transformational skills to equip them for their futures. Be a part of something bigger.

Junior Players is the oldest, longest running arts programming not for profit in Dallas. Since 1955, we have provided innovative arts education for FREE to children and youth in North Texas and beyond. 

Through our programming, youth are transformed. 

Our camps and afterschool programs are targeted to arts deserts - those areas that are underfunded and underserved.


There, we engage children and youth through the arts, providing them with the tools they need to navigate real life challenges confidently and competently. 

MISSION: Empowering Young Voices 


The mission of Junior Players is to encourage intellectual growth, mental well-being and the development of life skills in the youth of North Texas through mentoring, creative expression and participation in dramatic and arts activities.

Each year, Junior Players serves approximately 15,000 students and 6,000 audience members and employs over 100 highly qualified teaching artists.

Junior Players exists to encourage, empower and enable North Texas children and youth through the arts. We have the resources and staff to deliver exceptional programming to disenfranchised youth. To bring our vision to reality, all that’s missing is you.
