Youth Theatre Productions

Our Youth Theatre Program is designed to pique 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. All youth are welcome to audition or participate, and parents and siblings are encouraged to help with costumes and scenery!

Theatre 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 the Centers directly by calling 495-8989 or emailing youththeatre@artsbonita.org.

A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind's most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.
