We are working on a couple of projects that will make our productions more exciting. First is removing the side walls of the stage. This will give more room on each side of the stage for entrances and exits. It will also give us more options for set design and building.

We are also adding space on the east side of the barn for storage. It will also let performers go from one side of the stage to the other backstage without going outside!

Work we must! See you at the barn for Oklahoma!, The Pink Panther Strikes Again, Something Rotten, and Flowers For Algernon! And don’t forget SHAKESPEARED! in June and the Children’s Theatre Workshop in July!

YTW 2024 Registration Open!

Last season’s Shakespeare productions were based on The Tempest.

This year’s two-week long June workshop centers around A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.   The FREE workshop provides young players with an opportunity to engage with Shakespeare’s plays in a fun way and to see the potential interpretations that lie within the text.

This workshop meets in the afternoons Monday-Friday June 17-28 with a performances Friday and Saturday evening, June 28th [middle school] and 29th [high school] at 7:00pm when each group will present its version of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM.    

The scripts will be available soon on the playhouse website at the Youth Theatre Workshop page at the drop down menu. So, feel free to read it before our first day. June 17th. We will read through the play on day one, and the players will have a chance to note their role preferences. The roles will be cast that evening, and rehearsals begin on day two!  

THERE ARE PARTS FOR EVERYONE! “Shakespeared!” is tailored to provide young players with an opportunity to engage with Shakespeare’s text in a fun way and to see the potential interpretations that lie within the text. 

So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.
