Upcoming Events

Murder’s in the Heir performance dates have been tentatively rescheduled for April 25, 26 and 27!

Due to the situation with the coronvirus, we have tentatively rescheduled the performance dates of our production of Murder’s in the Heir for April 24, 25 and 26 at 7:00pm at Kirk in the HIlls.

As a precaution, we will be cancelling all rehearsals until after April 3. We will be monitoring the situation very carefully in the next few weeks and if the situation worsens, then all rehearsals and performances will be cancelled.

Tickets that have already been purchased can be exchanged for the performance dates on April 24, 25 and 26 or they can be fully refunded. Payment for shout-outs, ads and sponsorships will also be fully refunded if the show is cancelled.

We will continue to keep everyone updated as we get more information or if the situation changes.

Thursday evening classes postponed until April 30

All Thursday evening classes will be postponed until April 30. The class session will be extended an additional 3 weeks.

  1. Hello,

    I am interested in signing my son up for the Junior Theater class (3.5yrs – 5 yrs). Is the cost $50 per class or in total?

    Thank you!

    Michelle

    • Hi Michelle- Thanks for contacting us! The cost of the Junior Theatre class is $50.00 for the 5 week session and there is an additional $25.00 annual registration fee (the $25.00 annual registration fee only needs to be paid once per year), so the total cost will be $75.00.
