New! Youth & Adult Theatrics Program
While looking ahead and keeping the health and safety of our community and staff in mind, we have decided that we will not be holding musical productions until further notice. In its place we are proud to offer theatrical productions.


Our Upcoming Fall/Winter Performance Will Be…


About the play…
Tenderfella, a poetic and empathetic teen, is a big disappointment to his family. His six siblings are gifted athletes who make their father, Coach, proud. Uncoordinated at every sport, Tenderfella is an embarrassment to the family. He is expected to cook and clean, since that’s the “only exercise he gets.” At Judkins High, Tenderfella is a natural target for the school bully, Willard. All this changes when exasperated teen star, Roxanne Janico, moves away from Hollywood to start a new life as a “normal” kid in Pismo Beach, California. A jaded young actress and the school outcast create unexpected magic. It’s not everyday you fall in love with a star. This modern day retelling of the classic “Cinderella” will have the audience laughing and cheering for an unlikely hero.
