Musical Theatre Companies

The Musical Theatre Companies are designed for students who want to be a part of a fun musical theatre experience! Auditions are optional and all levels of performers are invited to be a part of this show! In this ensemble-based show, every performer is in every song within their age group’s company, singing and dancing.  The show will include all three companies and will be performed with full lighting and sound.
