Young Artist Productions

Education Through Experience

Through rehearsal and execution of high-quality musical productions, young performers are trained in technique and craft, etiquette and professionalism. These young performers are working alongside the industry’s finest professional performers. Students earn professional credits for their resumes while furthering their artistic education and personal growth. These young performers take major leaps in their artistic abilities and form lasting relationships with peers. Best of all, our young artists take pride in their hard work as hours of rehearsal culminate at show time. As educators, we have the privilege to see them behind the curtain as their energy and excitement buzzes before they take the stage and deliver stellar performances.

Young Artist Productions

Young Artist Productions are family-friendly shows. Although adults help behind the scenes, these productions are “for kids, by kids.”

Past productions include:

  • Beauty and the Beast, Jr.
  • Aladdin, Jr.
  • Once Upon a Mattress
  • The Music Man, Jr.
