This will be a year for our Youth Actors!

The Managing Artistic Directors, Timothy Barnes and Allison Chicorel, look forward to providing many opportunities for our amazing youth performers to work under the direction of the M.A.D.s as well as alongside professional adult actors in the Milwaukee and surrounding areas.In between our 3 mainstage productions of 2018 the theatre will be filled with our beloved Junior Concert Workshops as well as exciting theatre classes for new and experienced young performers.For those of you who have preferred our mature productions before, don’t worry! While keeping 2018 quite heavy on youth theatrics, we will still have non-youth musicals and cabarets on occasion and much more in 2019.

Audition details for our other 2018 productions as well as Class Descriptions will come at a later date.

2018 Class Registration will open December 1, 2017.   Save the date!  These classes will fill up fast!
