Our Winter/Spring 2020 Titles:
KidStage Becoming Robin Hood:
This isn’t the fairy tale you thought you knew! In a world ruled by tyranny, peasants rise up and take aim against the rich. This riveting original musical makes it clear that anyone can be a hero, and legends are made—not born.
TeenStage Guys & Dolls:
Set in Damon Runyon's New York City, Guys and Dolls follows gambler Nathan Detroit, his girlfriend and nightclub performer Adelaide, fellow gambler Sky Masterson, and straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown, as they venture from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but eventually end up right where they belong.
Our Fall 2019 Titles:
KidStage The Music Man:
There's trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian. By turns wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best.
TeenStage Legally Blonde:
A fabulously fun award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. This musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!
An exciting opportunity for our experienced YouthStage actors to take their talents to the next level! This advanced cabaret-style production will feature solo, duet, trio and spotlight opportunities. Students will be taught advanced performing musical theater skills.
