Winter/Spring Classes


New! Community Footlight Players Presents: 2nd Story Theatre (Ages 6-10)
Directed by Spencer Douglas Clark

Sign up for your audition today! Email: sclark@communityparkdistrict.org.


For anyone who loves to sing, dance, act, or who just has a flare for the dramatics. This is a unique musical production for kids ages 6-10 where we will cast 2 groups of 12 to create their own socially distant musical story to be performed for a live outdoor audience! Each cast will rehearse separately and choose their favorite songs from the radio along with the specific characters they want to play. During rehearsals we will develop a story with these songs and characters by guiding our actors to make character choices that will create a plot, conflict, and excitement! Will our characters go inside the spooky mansion or will they visit a fairy tale world? Will your character be the hero or the villain? Together we will find answers to these questions to create our own unique musicals!

AGES: 6 -10

FEE: $165 (due when cast)
