With over 30 years combined teaching experience and more than twice that performing in venues across North America, arts education is a natural fit for Ten West.

Our teaching and performing includes programs about character and manners, conflict resolution, and workshops on physical theatre and integrating arts into the curriculum. We’ve taught and performed at K-12 schools throughout California, as well as Plaza de la Raza, USC, UCLA, Pepperdine, and Cal Arts.

Our shows The Fracas Brothers and The Quest for Character are proud members of the Segerstrom Center for the Performing Arts and Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center’s Arts Education Programs and are also available for independent bookings.

The Fracas Brothers – Faced with everyday challenges like arguments, fights and bullying, students and adults alike need the tools of conflict resolution. In this hilarious show, Dr. Fracas and his brothers, Frank and Beans learn how to identify and resolve their conflicts. The show utilizes music, dance, physical comedy, audience interaction and participation to teach practical approaches to conflict resolution.

The Quest for Character – In a rapidly expanding and fast-paced world, manners and character matter now more than ever. Join Don Frijoles and Cowboy Harold on their magical journey as they learn the value of manners, citizenship, teamwork and integrity on their adventurous and fun-filled Quest for Character.
