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.
