Fall 2018 – 2019 Theatre Session!
Auditions for our fall session will take place on August 22nd from 4:00pm to 7:00pm
Each student is asked to sing part (usually one verse and one chorus is a good length) of any song of their choosing for our team of directors, and everyone who auditions will receive a part!
The shows we will be producing are “Cinderella KIDS”for our younger group (ages 5-11), “Shrek JR” for our older group (ages 10-15), and the teens (ages 13+) will be performing “The 25th Annual Putnam Spelling Bee”.
At auditions we ask that you pay a $5o dollar deposit before receiving your script and CD. The rest of the $245 tuition can be paid anytime before the show.

Our Theatre Program
The Next Generation Theatre program is open to children, ages 4 ½ through 19, and sometimes beyond . Each session runs several weeks and ends with a spectacular show open for the entire community to enjoy. Each child learns many skills as they are exposed to every aspect of the theatre production process. Students begin to understand choreography, set design, acting, vocals, stage direction, as well as costuming and use of props. Over time, the children will have the opportunity to use their talents in different roles, thus gaining a greater understanding of the entire theatre process.
One of the most unique features of the Theatre Program are the directors. At Next Generation Theatre each production is led by not only an adult mentor but also one or more teen directors, all of whom are highly motivated natural born leaders. They each have high levels of talent and years of experience in dancing, singing, choreography, set design, and costuming. The teen directors make this program extra special; their age and experience allows them to bond and relate to kids in a way that bridges the gap between the students and adult directors. They also inspire the younger students to visualize themselves as the next teen leaders.
Theatre Session Fees & Schedule
We have three sessions each year: Fall, Spring, and a shorter Summer Camp.
The cost of each session covers all aspects of the program from show rights, performance fees, exceptional backdrops, singing, dancing, and acting lessons, and scripts to costumes, staff, and music. Each child will receive a free T-shirt from the show and a high quality playbill as a memento of their experience.
Cost: $245 per student
* A non-refundable $50 deposit is required before casting, and $50 is due on the day rehearsals start. The balance can be paid throughout the theatre session.
