Updated: Jul 19



We Are Kicking Off Our 2022-2023 Season Auditions With Princess Fearless on July 25 2022!


As a community based theatre committed to excellence and top-quality productions, it is our mission to invite children, adults, to participate in the performing arts regardless of their background and experience level. We believe that theatre is for all to enjoy, so we have selected a season that reflects that belief.


Therefore, it is our pleasure to announce the auditions for our 2022-2023 Season! We’re kicking things off straight away with auditions for the regional premiere of Princess Fearless, a one-act play for young people written by local playwright, author, and actor Keetha B on Monday July 25, 2022. The show will be directed by Rahsheem Shabazz. We are looking for a diverse cast of young people ages 10 and up and adults (a small stipend will be provided for actors over the age of 18 for the daytime performances).
