Final Performances

For the last two weeks, kids from elementary school to college have been hard at work perfecting their acting, singing, and movement skills on the stage.

Come out and support talented youngsters as they show off their abilities. Don’t stress too much about which performance to attend because there are simply too many rising stars to be contained in one show, so either way you’ll get a top notch performance.
