Mission Statement

The Opening Doors Foundation served as a 501(C)(3) non-profit affiliate of the Kevin Jones Performing Arts Studio from 2002-2013. Its philanthropic mission was to provide free, quality, theater for the people of the Roanoke Valley, while at the same time, allow young performers the opportunity to learn about the challenges and rewards of live theater (both performance and technical).

All KJPAS productions offered free admission, thus making theater accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial status.

Over 200 students have come through the studio
program since its inception

90% of KJPAS students have gone on to
pursue theater as a career

Over 20,000 people have been entertained at the Jefferson Center during our FREE productions
