Each year we evaluate and offer opportunities that allow our students to continue to learn and grow, based on their abilities and options that are presented. Our team is an auditioned group of students ages 8-20. We meet once a week on Monday nights, August through February for our first semester, then again from February through June for our second semester. We offer performance opportunities throughout the year. Auditions are held each summer for the upcoming year--please email us at for more info!
We perform at several events and finish the first semester by traveling to a national competition in Atlanta . Our high school and young adults are working on vocal and acting techniques and on a couple of original productions. Team members are offered additional performing, casting and workshop opportunities throughout the year. This year's options will include four professional shows, large community events, recording sessions and the opportunity to workshop some original pieces to be performed in the area. Check our events page and follow us on Facebook for upcoming shows and performances!
