The Juniors group is a 2-week introductory program in which students learn the basics of performance: acting, singing and dancing. It is open to boys and girls entering grades 3-6. Rehearsals will be held from June 29 to July 10 (no rehearsal on July 3) with the show scheduled for July 10 at 7 p.m. Cost is $90.

The Footlights program is a 4-week program open to boys and girls in grades 6-9. There will be group auditions. Rehearsals will be held June 22-July 18. A full-length musical production will be performed on July 17 and July 18 at 7 p.m. Cost is $175.

The Spotlights program is a 5-week program open to boys and girls in grades 9-12. There will be group auditions. Rehearsals will be held June 22-July 25. A full-length musical production will be performed on July 24 and July 25 at 7 p.m. Cost is $195.

A $10 discount will be given for each additional student within the same household registered for the Footlights or Spotlights program.

Because of the developmental nature of the Juniors program and the technical challenges of the Footlights and Spotlights programs, students should plan to attend every day of rehearsal. Excessive absences or vacation could affect eligibility for the show. Visit the website for attendance policy information.
