Create & Learn

Victoria Theatre Association’s Education & Engagement programs enrich the lives, learning and leisure of Miami Valley residents by providing free and low-cost creative experiences that are varied, diverse and accessible. We believe everyone in our community deserves to experience the arts and express themselves creatively regardless of skill level, age, gender, race, ethnicity, abilities or socioeconomic status and our many community collaborations enable us to fulfill that belief.

One Small Voice: Women Who Rock

Inspired by BEAUTIFUL – THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL, the One Small Voice: Women Who Rock contest helps aspiring female singer-songwriters in the Dayton region to find and use their musical voices as a creative force in the world. Selected participants will complete a month-long boot camp experience which will immerse them in the music industry, culminating in the creation of a signature song which participants will both professionally record and share live. One Small Voice: Women Who Rock will serve a multi-generational group of up to 20 female participants ages 13 and up in the Dayton region.
