Kids Get Staged
This lively, exciting and instructional year-round theatre production program will educate and challenge young people with an interest in the performing arts. Participants will learn and hone many acting techniques as they work on character development, scene study and thematic analysis in preparation for their final performance. At the same time, participants will develop new and significant relationships as we collaborate to develop a cohesive theatrical ensemble.
We are thrilled to announce this year’s project, Mary Poppins! Everyone's favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure. The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
Acting, comedy, drama, song and dance are all part of the training the young actors will receive from our professional staff of directors, choreographers and voice instructors in preparation for their final performances of their full-scale production - including professionally designed and built props and costumes - at a local theatre in the Spring of 2023.

Show Time for Teens
This dynamic, creative and instructional year-round theatre program will educate and challenge High School students with an interest in the performing arts. Participants will learn and hone many acting techniques as they work on character development, scene study and thematic analysis in preparation for their performance, which will be determined in the first few weeks of the program. Past performances include: The Drowsy Chaperone, The Pink Panther, Alice in Wonderland, Clue, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, Marx Brothers Plays, You Can’t Take It With You and many others. We also encourage the actors to showcase their other talents by getting involved in the design and creation of the production and creative elements; sets, lighting, sound, costuming, music and choreography. The final production is sure to be a tremendous and brilliant collaboration of our young, local talent.
