Founded in 2003 by Greg Shane, Bryan Caldwell, and Colin Simson, CRE Theatre provided theatre programs and performances to Los Angeles community centers and schools. In 2007, CRE was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit under the new name of CRE Outreach to actively engage underserved individuals through our performing arts programs. Our three distinct programs reach 1) at-risk youth, 2) the visually impaired, and 3) military veterans.

CRE stands for Create, Reflect, Empower- words that encompass the process, focus, and targeted outcomes of our programs. Through the creation of original artistic works and theatre productions, CRE Outreach participants demonstrate that anything can happen, if you just believe.
