Current Offerings

The Princess Bride – Grades 7th – 12th

“My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die…” These lines come to life when Mara’s cold forces her to stay in bed all day, and listen as her Mom reads a story jam-packed with pirates, revenge, and true love! The Princess Bride comes to life onstage combining action-packed sword fights with comical humor as Buttercup finds herself in the middle of Prince Humperdink’s scheme to start a war. Buttercup is kidnaped by the evil Vizzini, and his companions, Inigo Montoya and Fezzik the Giant, but luckily the Dread Pirates Roberts is on the way to rescue her, right? With plenty of theatrical combat, creative staging, and fantastical costumes, Center Stage students will find this production to be everything they wished for and more!

Grades 7th – 12th

First Act Children’s Theatre is excited to bring to the stage a NEW release of a very popular Broadway musical! Due to publicity restrictions by the composers, no one may release the title until late March, HOWEVER- we can give you a clue: What do swords, Greek mythology, rock music, the color orange and the search for a lightning bolt have in common? Don’t wait to register for this certain-to-be-filled summer musical theatre camp, and keep your eyes “peeled” for the title announcement going live on March 29th!
