48 Hour Youth Musical

48 Hour Youth Logo

September 27-30th

What results will we get when we mix a group of adult directors, stage managers, and choreographers with a group of high energy youth and lock them in a building for 48 hours straight?  A GREAT TIME AND A GREAT SHOW!!

Students will audition, rehearse, and perform a surprise short youth musical for the public in only 48 hours. 

PLEASE NOTE: If your child does not do well in high-stress situations, or does not deal well with fatigue, this is probably not a good option for your child. You know your children best, so please take this into consideration when deciding to participate.  The audition process is very telling for us.  If we see a restless kid with very little self-control during the audition, it's a good sign that this is not a good format for that type of kid.  As for teens, the same applies.  If you are a teenager wanting to be a part of this show, but you don't do well with lack of sleep or stress, this is not for you! We expect our older students to be good role models for the younger ones.
