Adult Theater San Diego – Educate, Engage And Empower (E3)

As Teaching artists, we believe “there’s an unwritten rule in our industry; when you get to a certain level you should help someone else along the way”. We do that by nurturing the talent of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. We believe that everyone should have an equal opportunity to quality education within the arts; especially those that would otherwise go without these opportunities.

T3 is dedicated to engaging solidarity through training and in the production of theatre arts; contributing to the advancement of community members through live performances and education. Through participation individuals gain invaluable experience, funds are raised and everyone involved gets the chance to receive positive feedback, and cultivate healthy habits and relationships that could last a lifetime.

What Our Students Say

“Morie, I can’t thank you enough for your hard work, commitment and dedication to these girls. Renata went from being very sedentary to wanting to eat healthier and losing 2 pounds just from dancing so much and training with you. We have defiantly noticed a change for the better in her self- esteem and she is anxious to keep learning
more with you.” -Arlene Gil T3 Parent

“T3 Triple Threat Youth Mentors is an excellent musical theatre program! Morie Williams is a very professional and energetic director who inspires his students to reach for the stars while providing them with the practical tools and support to do so. His positive spirit, refined skills and disciplined work ethic set the tone for a rigorous yet fun learning environment. He has gathered a wonderful team of professionals who are dedicated to teaching our children with integrity and purpose.” -Roxanne Rojas de Blanco

“We are so grateful for the amazing job done by Morie and the T3 staff. As a low-income family, our options are limited when it comes to summer camps. What a joy to have access to such high-quality instruction in the performing arts. The T3 program offered fun and also a chance to gain a sense of the discipline and hard work it takes to put on a show.” -Cybele Pena

“My daughter grew from being a timid eight-year-old, afraid of speaking in public, to a young lady staring in two dance numbers, AND a transition piece all on her own! Morie’s diligence, drive, and passion for the program, definitely shines through. My hats off to the entire crew!”
