Paraphrase Productions’ mission is to shine a new light on theater through the peer-to-peer mentoring of young adult artists in theatrical performance and creative excellence.

What We Do

Enrich Our Community Paraphrase is honored to continue the rich tradition of live theater on the Peninsula. Since our first season we have been committed to making high-quality theater accessible to everyone.

Empower Our Youth - We believe that theater can be instrumental in shaping the lives of young adults. We produce young adults who have found their voice and can face their futures with confidence.
