Auditions: To schedule an audition appointment, please email Producer, Crissi Allen at . An audition form/packet will be emailed to you and this must be filled out before attending auditions. This is not a walk-in audition – you must have an appointment with us. Walk-ins are not guaranteed a spot since we will need to close it at 50.

Encompassing drama, music and movement, this fun drama camp will focus on developing the ability to communicate through the powerful and multifaceted tool of theater. We accept beginning, experienced and aspiring actors who desire to be in a musical stage production and seek to focus on developing their acting, dancing, and singing skills.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in every aspect of production; from set design/construction to costumes to makeup and hair to choreography. In this way, we hope to inspire students to become effective communicators using various media, there is MUCH more to shows than who is on stage!

Synopsis of Production – The Biblical Book of Esther tells the story of how a wicked man, Haman, tried to destroy all the Jews in ancient Persia. However, his plot was foiled by the heroism of the Jewish Queen Esther, and Haman suffered the fate intended for his victims. This Musical Play seeks to be as accurate to the Biblical text as possible.
