About Understudies

With the success and interest in youth theater with our Junior Players Program, the board decided to expand on their youth programs with “The Understudies”. As a mentoring program it was developed to encourage continued youth involvement with the performing arts. Open for youth between the ages of 14 and 20. A Youth Director between the ages of 14 and 20 is chosen in the Fall of the previous season year, and under the guidance of 2 Adult Mentors are instructed in how to produce a successful stage production. Not only do the youth get the chance to direct a show but they also take on the other production team roles of backstage, lights, sound, etc. Auditions are generally held in late Spring or early Summer, with the show being in Summer.

Past Understudies Performances

Resumes & Show Proposals from prospective Directors must be submitted by the August Business Meeting for the following Season.
