E.S.C.A.P.E. Theatre

Educating children in the world of musical theatre.

Meet The Directors

Elizabeth and Kyle Burson met 22 years ago during a children's theatre production and with ESCAPE are realizing the fulfillment of a dream. They bring their love of musical theatre, energy, creative passion, and more than 30 years experience to this partnership. Elizabeth and Kyle's goal is to continue to teach children throughout the Santa Clarita Valley, providing quality educational children theatre for the entire family.

Elizabeth is a graduate of the University of California, Irvine, with her B.A. in Music. As a classically trained pianist, she has played with several orchestras before turning her talents to the stage. As Musical Director-Pianist-Conductor, her credits include over 100 shows throughout the Southland. Some of her favorite performance credits include Maria in "The Sound of Music", Peter in "Peter Pan", Rizzo in "Grease", and Grace in "Annie". She enjoys spending time with her husband, and four children, and is grateful to have the opportunity to bring her family, teaching skills, and her love for theatre together.

Kyle has been performing since the age of 7. Theatre has always been his outlet for creativity for far too many years to mention. He has performed such roles as Rooster in "Annie", Dentist in "Little Shop of Horrors",Will Parker in "Oklahoma", Michael in "Peter Pan", the Lion in "The Wizard of Oz", and many others. He is the Project Manager for an Entertainment Company and is happy to combine his knowledge both on stage and off to bring a more professional experience for the children.

-- "With a loving and supportive family, anything is possible."
