For our large stage play productions, most rehearsals run weekly between 4-5 months prior to the production date.
The location may vary but usually occur at churches, theaters, public library large rooms or other community organizations.
For our mini productions, we will have about 3-4 rehearsals 2-3 weeks before the performances.
Please review the rehearsal schedule and let us know if there are any conflicts in the dates/times. We are flexible and will work with your schedule. You do not have to be present for all scenes. However, Tech and dress rehearsal all cast members must be present.

Our large stage play productions are presented annually in various communities at selected venues. Upcoming Fall performances TBD.
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
We provide youth training and development programs for various communities by allowing the youth to audition and participate in our community stage plays. The rehearsals and classes help to train youth to develop oral presentations skills, public speaking skills, leadership, working with teams and gain social skills. It also helps to build self-esteem, confidence, and provides a positive environment for young adults looking for an outlet to express their creativity. This training provides them the opportunity to showcase their talents on stage or virtually, improve their artistic skills tremendously. We provide a variety of art, acting, youth development and leadership classes in our Summer Art & Theater programs which usually runs from June-Aug annually.
Students also get an opportunity to gain community service credits and meet other students just like them.
