Story Slam Returns!

Stay safe and stay home, slammers, because this fall the stories are coming to YOU. This month’s Story Slam brings stories of “The New Normal” on Friday, September 11th. Our lives have changed so much in the past six months. Come share stories of how your lives have been affected by current events, or perhaps stories about how things changed in the past. Get your favorite beverage ready and join us for music, stories, and online community.

Digital happy hour and live music featuring Ernesto Hodison Jr. start at 7:15 pm. Slam starts at 7:35 pm.


The Big One-Oh! Auditions are Open!

Calling all actors, singers, and dancers in 3rd-9th grade! We may not be back in the rehearsal room or on the stage quite yet, but you can still rehearse, perform, and celebrate the magic of musical theatre with The Big One-Oh! Online Edition.  In this new “Zoomsical” Charley Maplewood has never been one for parties – that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. Well, unless you count his monster friends, but they’re only imaginary. But now that he’s turning 10—the big one-oh—he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a “House of Horrors” theme. Of course, things don’t work out as he plans. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh… becomes the big OH-NO!?

Take a look at our audition announcement for more information and submit your video audition by September 20th!
