Young performers will take the stage as they create a feature-length production as a part of the Centre’s P.L.A.Y. Project!  Performers will become immersed in the process of staging a theatre production under the direction of industry professionals.

Rehearsals will focus on skill-building in acting, vocals, and choreography while developing leadership abilities in collaboration, character development, and communication.  Performances will be presented in one of the Centre’s professional theatres.  Productions will be cast through an audition process, and successful cast members will be invited to join the program.   Join in the fun and let’s P.L.A.Y!
