Welcome to Schoolhouse Theater Arts!

Schoolhouse Theater Arts, Inc. believes all children should have a chance to learn, grow, and discover the world around them through theater. Our company's goal is to offer children that chance, as well as the opportunity for fun, teamwork, creativity, and, of course, performance.



Schoolhouse Theater Arts, Inc. is owned and operated by Mimi Chiarella, Dave Ortega, and Cheryl Ramsey. They have been working together in children's theater in Howard County, MD since 1985.  After working together in a variety of capacities, they decided to start their own children's theater company and in 2001 S.T.A. was born!  Since then, Schoolhouse Theater Arts, Inc. has provided live theatre experiences for children of all ages.


If you would like more information about S.T.A. and all the drama programs that we have to offer, please feel free to explore our website, give us a call, or write us an e-mail.
