theatre production poses on stage -  A closer picture of a large ensemble is posing onstage. Some of them are pointing out to the audience or to the side. They are wearing 1930s inspired clothing and many of them have suitcases. There is a backdrop behind them which has the image of a city.

Our dynamic production season enriches the education of our students and allows for an extension of the skills they are learning in the classroom. At the same time, we hope to take you, our audience and extended family, on an unforgettable journey as you experience these stories with us. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre this year!
