Our Journey

Journey Productions in Minneapolis, MN was founded in 2002 by artistic director Tonya Williams. With more than a decade of theatrical and directorial experience, Tonya now leads our performing arts school and productions for youth in the Twin Cities and North Suburbs areas. 

“Each of our performances is a celebration of our students’ hard work and dedication, camaraderie and friendships, newly-gained confidence, and the satisfaction of reaching personal and team goals. Along the way, we all learn more about the power of music, dance, and artistic expression in our lives.”

– Tonya Williams
