In the spring, youth and teens work together on the same production. The staff creates an environment of teamwork that allows performers to act alongside their peers (casts are usually organized by elementary, middle, and high school) while supporting the other casts as the ensemble. This provides our younger students with the best role models and our older actors with leadership opportunities.
Registration for our spring Main Stage show opens in December. Rehearsals are Saturdays 9-1.
