Work with young people is also central to the Theatre’s mission, manifested in a suite of programs called Arts Discovery that includes in-school artist residencies, theatre classes, and a longtime commitment to young people from the City of Chester through scholarships and round-trip transportation to Malvern for the Theatre’s programs. In all, People’s Light serves more than 80,000 people annually.
