From our founder:

27 years ago I was bitten by the ‘theatre bug’ and have not looked back since. Working on over 60 productions across Fargo-Moorhead in the past ten years, I have seen the growth of the theatre scene in our community first hand. Out of a passion for theatre, and a love for seeing the growth of people as they participate in the arts, I am excited to launch BRUSVEN THEATRICAL.

It is our mission to ignite imagination, cultivate creativity, and enrich education through theatrical experiences. One of our core objectives for BRUSVEN THEATRICAL is to bring Fargo-Moorhead’s first year-round Children’s Theatre to life. We will provide opportunities for youth and families to immerse themselves in theatre education and performances as well as opportunities for year-round, family friendly productions.

A cornerstone to this mission is to create a new theatre work for children every 18-24 months here in Fargo Moorhead. We believe we are uniquely positioned to foster the creation of a new musical theatre production for youth, schools, and community theaters from here in Fargo-Moorhead. While look to hire a national writing team, all the production work and workshopping will be done here in the FM Area to give our local performers and designer the opportunity to join us in the creation of this work.

We believe deeply in the power theatricality plays in life. While our main objective is to program year-round Children’s Theatre, we will also launch new events, programs, services and resources that add a little more theatricality to the region. You will see these unfold over the course of the next few months.

We look forward to creating and growing BRUSVEN THEATRICAL here in the Fargo-Moorhead area and cannot wait to join creative forces with you along the way.

  • Theater can provide a life changing opportunity for anyone. I've personally seen youth develop confidence and life skills through experience with high-quality theater programs. I'm excited to be able to work with the team at b theatrical to provide that to more people.

  • Confidence, camaraderie, creativity and a chance to really grow as a person are just a few reasons why theatre is so important in a child's life. As a mother of theatre kids for over 15 years, I have seen the amazing transformation as they learn and perform. Our Fargo-Moorhead Community has seen a tremendous growth in children taking part in theatre over the years and to have a facility that provides year round educational programs and performances will be a tremendous asset for our youth and families and I am extremely excited and proud to be a part of it!

  • Great theatre is about challenging how we think and encouraging us to fantasize about a world we aspire to.

  • I believe in the power theatre has to transform people. I have seen hundreds of students grow into their confidence, step our of their comfort zone, and live into the people they were meant to be through the spark of creativity.
