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!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 cast in the spring and prepare for each production with a two week intensive rehearsal process prior to tech week (usually 3-4 hrs/day). We ask parents to provide financial support thru participation fees (that are comparable to camp tuition) or equally selling ads for the program . Parents can also contribute as a sponsor where their business logo is featured on posters/banner and all media! Either way, it's a win-win!
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 and attract a professional creative staff.
