Theater Programs

Members & Non Members
Member and Non Members, are invited to get involved in out theater programs! From acting workshops to musical theater performances, we have options for everyone!  We are a community of actors that support each other’s growth. Our Theater group meets once a week for a 2 hour rehearsal. During that time we work on general theater skills, blocking scenes, learning dances, lines, and songs (if we are performing a musical).

Our Next Community Theater Performance is…

— About Seussical —
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.


The community is invited to attend our production held at the Alan J. Levine Theater at the J.
May 30th at 7:00 p.m.
