Fosters Diversity & Inclusiveness

Building a Culture of Arts

Saltwater Performing Arts  believes that providing a cultural education develops passion, creativity, imagination, and confidence which are critical for coping with society's challenges.

Core Values


The mission of Saltwater Performing Arts, formerly St. Marys Children’s Theatre, is to provide a performing arts education that inspires and enhances the cultural life of the coastal communities of southeast Georgia and northeast Florida by offering a stimulating, creative and supportive outlet to children and youth, families and the community, helping them build self-confidence and character, while developing self-expression, independence, and responsibility.


We envision a theatre program where young people are inspired, challenged and driven to contribute to community and to be a leader in today’s world.  We strive to develop the full potential of young people as members of the community, enhance the quality-of-life component with expanded exposure to the arts, and achieve the highest possible standards of theatre through artistic excellence.
