The Summer Theater Workshop is a production of North Shore Arts Angels, Inc., a new non-profit corporation established to provide North Shore students and residents with arts educational experiences and deepen community connections through the arts. A beloved program, the North Shore Summer Theater Workshop was run by the school district for 42 years before being discontinued after a school budget defeat about a decade ago. The new program is independently supported by tuitions, donations and targeted fundraising such as the Viking Masquers 50th Anniversary Gala, a June 2013 musical revue featuring over 140 alumni that raised about $45,000 to help relaunch the Summer Theater Workshop.
