This season’s performance:

Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, everyday ten-year-old until the bulletin board on the wall above his bed comes loose and falls right on top of him. The next morning, Stanley wakes up flat. In a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley — the ultimate exchange student — scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem. He's stamped, posted and cancelled from Hollywood and France to Honolulu and beyond, all in an effort to become a three-dimensional boy once more.

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes all find their cliques. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. The couple cause an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the "status quo," Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

Teen Improv Grades 7-12

Come dive into the spontaneous art of improvisation! In this class, we continue to explore the fundamentals of improv while learning how to ‘get out of our heads’ and build a strong group dynamic. We will learn to make quick-acting choices, find cohesion as an ensemble, and strengthen our performer skills – all through fun games and exercises. The final class will be an improv show for family and friends.
