Youth, ages 8-18*, participating in these workshops will spend 4 months training in acting, voice and dance, and 4 months applying what they have learned as they rehearse for the spring musical.
Center Stage Youth Performers offers a two-part program:
(September thru December)
The fall semester is a series of workshops. Each Wednesday, participants attend three 45-minute classes: Acting, Dance, and Music. They will be taught age-appropriate skills in each area. These skills will be built upon weekly, and students will apply them immediately as they prepare for a recital-like performance — the December Showcase.
In addition, youth who have been in the program for 5 or more years will participate in special numbers for the December Showcase. This requires additional rehearsals on some Saturdays.
(January thru April)
The winter semester is production time. In January, all participants will audition for and be cast in our spring production. Rehearsals will be held each Wednesday (with daily rehearsals near show time) and the performance is in the spring. (Performance dates in April at the Covey Center for the Arts.)
This is the perfect opportunity to completely apply the skills taught in the fall semester and give every student a chance to be a star. This year’s spring show is “My Son Pinocchio Jr.”.
