Children's Theatre Company
Our Children’s Theatre Company is open to students in grades 3-6. Students do not need previous experience in order to participate. This company is open to the first 30 students who enroll in the program. All students who enroll in our theatre company are cast in the production.
The Children’s Theatre Company performs two 70-minute junior shows every year. These shows are presented at the King Opera House in Van Buren with full sets, lights, costumes, and more; all of which give the show a true professional look for these young actors!
DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS THERE WILL BE NO FALL 2020 MUSICAL -- STAY TUNED FOR OUR ANNOUNCEMENT OF OUR SPRING 2021 MUSICAL PRODUCTION!
Our Spring 2020 production of Peter Pan JR, which has been on hold since March due to COVID-19 restrictions is set to begin rehearsals again in October with the original cast and will perform in December.
BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR ON-SITE ACTING CLASS OFFERINGS FOR FALL 2020 WHICH ALLOW FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING! THERE WILL ALSO BE VIRTUAL ACTING CLASS OPTIONS FOR THOSE STUDENTS CHOOSING TO REMAIN HOME AT THIS TIME.
Rehearsals for the Children’s Theatre Company are Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 4pm-7pm at Saint Boniface.
Audition material for the show is sent to those students who register two weeks before auditions. Typically, students prepare a segment of a song from the show and then are asked to read from the script. Students will review audition material with the production team prior to auditioning in class.
For students interested in preparing for their auditions, CSA offers a two-day Audition Prep Class which meets 4pm-6pm the Tuesday & Thursday prior to auditions. Students will work on material needed for auditions as well as hone their auditioning skills with one of our theatre faculty. The class concludes with a practice audition in front of the production team of the show.
In addition to a fall and spring production during the school year, we offer a musical theatre camp for this theatre company! This is a week-long intensive with rehearsals Monday through Friday, from 9am-4pm daily. We end our summer camp with a musical theatre revue that Friday evening.
