Theater Programs

We have afterschool theatre classes during the school year and 1 or 2 theater camps during the summer as well as a performance-oriented Puppetry camp in the summer.

We also have a "Creative Stage" program which offers evening theater rehearsals and 3-4 productions a year. This is an audition based show with the opportunity for actors of all ages to not only improve their skills, but contribute to cultural fun for the community. 

In July we have auditions for our annual Peach Days melodrama. Watch late June and early July for details.

Family Theatre Series- Called Creative stage!
Our goal is to offer a variety of family-friendly opportunities that include family theater by families, professional quality youth theater by youth and support of emerging artists.

A Fun Theatre Experience for Families by Families!
A theatre opportunity for the whole family. We are excited to be working with Ryan Erwin and several advanced theater students from USU as they use their recently acquired directing skills to join us for some awesome experiences. All practices and performances will be held at the Fine Arts Center.


Watch here also for the 2016-2017 season information. Starting with another great Melodrama written by DeAnn Nichols and directed by  Geri Garfield




The Fine Arts Center has a series of educational theater experiences for 1st through 12th grades, with additional opportunities for adults (Peach Days and occasional community theater)  Classes range from 8 to 14 week sessions and are repeated through the school year.  We also have a year round Improv program for older youth and college students. 
 
Students learn stage direction, characterization, poise, voice projection, body language and memorization.  Whether they plan to become theater majors or just want to be comfortable in front of an audience, theater is full of games and ideas that expand a student’s self expression and leadership skills. Everyone gets a voice, and is part of the action. 
 
Theater is a team sport where taking turns and helping each other is important, and where every part is needed.   As a student matures, theater is also a way to learn more about human nature as good actors need to observe and better understand how people react differently to various situations.
