Our Youth Theater Program is designed to peak the
interest of area youth and cultivate their knowledge of the theatre. All roles are cast solely
on talent, which mean auditions are necessary to be part of the show. Auditions are by appointment
only and actors are given a specific monologue to rehearse when they sign up to audition. There
is no fee for auditioning or participating, however parents and siblings are encouraged to help
out with costumes and scenery!
Theater is comprised of many elements aside from acting.
Local youth also serve as the backstage and technical crew for each show. Sound and Lighting
Technicians as well as backstage crew and stage managers are always needed and are
just as important as the actors. If you’re interested in helping behind the scenes contact Craig
Price directly by calling 495-8989 or emailing
