New this year and happening every other month is Stagecraft Studio. This “behind the scenes” workshop focuses on crucial components of a production; such as lighting, sound design, costuming, props, etc. Not everyone longs to be a singer or actor. A good production team is a VERY important part of theatre. We bring in local experts in these fields and give students real HANDS ON experience, sparking a greater interest in the many non-acting aspects of a musical theatre career.
