Fabian Gras Martinez lived to bring positive experiences to children. She loved the theatre and saw the value of theatre in positively shaping a child’s future. She actively became involved with Slidell Little Theatre’s Young Actor’s Theatre of Slidell (YATS) program which provides a theatre experience for children from age 4 through High School Seniors.
Fabian co-coordinated the YATS program for 10 years, touching the lives of well over 1,000 children. Her desire to bring the benefits of theatre to all inspired her to co-found the Mini-YATS program which starts YATS at age 4. Her dedication to the youth of Slidell through YATS is second to none.
