Summer Children's Theater for Ages 7-18

Our mission is to provide as many children who are interested a chance to participate in the performing arts in front of their family, friends, and community. Performing with others fosters teamwork and communication, promotes confidence and motivation, and instills professionalism, responsibility, and commitment.  These skills will benefit the participants in their personal and professional lives for years to come. 

Academy Program

Ages 7-13 are welcome to join us each summer to participate in a theatrical production! With two sessions for a play and two sessions for a musical, parents and children can find the time that best suits their schedule for this 4 week experience!

Rehearsals and performances will be in the Imagination Theater at the Frances Leach High Prairie Arts & Science Complex, 1810 Schafer St in Bismarck. 


Conservatory Program

Ages 13-18 are welcome to join us each summer to participate in a full-scale theatrical production! With one play and one musical, students can select a show based upon their interests. Participants are asked to audition each Spring to enable the directors to get a jump start on casting, but all who audition will be cast.

Rehearsals and performances will be at Dakota Stage Ltd.
