Produced by LJ Woodard, Owner and Creative Director of the Performance Club, Summer Stock is by AUDITION ONLY where the best of the best shine! Due to the size of the theater space, our cast sizes are limited to 20-25 performers max. Our productions focus on entertaining young audiences and families! We cast in the spring and prepare for each production with a two week intensive rehearsal process prior to tech week. We are a for-profit business where our goal is to provide quality children's theater that includes a positive theatrical experience to our entire cast. We ask parents to provide financial support thru participation fees or equally selling ads for the program and sponsorships for the posters/banner and all media!
No youth performer will ever be denied a role based on financial participation because of our sponsors! And we are proud to generate a positive return to pay our professional creative staff.
AUDITIONS FOR SUMMER STOCK are set for April of 2019 in person or via video! Details coming soon!
SEEKING DANCERS, SINGERS AND ACTORS! AGES 5-13YRS!
PLUS CREW (ages 14 & up)!
This select number of 14-19yrs will be cast as performers for our summer stock show BUT will also double as junior assistants and production crew that will earn stipend pay and/or volunteer hours with no participation fee required!
