(Ages 11-17)

Enter the stage with our Children’s Theatre, designed for emerging performers aged 11-17! This immersive experience delves deeper into the world of theater, allowing participants to explore the intricacies of acting, singing, and dancing with a more mature approach. Focused on fostering confidence and creativity, this program ensures each participant develops into a skilled performer. With two sessions, both culminating in fully staged musical productions, participants will not only shine on stage but also forge lasting connections. Join us for a summer of theatrical growth, refined skills, and unforgettable memories, as we lay the groundwork for a more mature and nuanced understanding of the stage.
