ACT’s YOUTH CREATIVE is a program for youth ages 8 – 18 where they’ll act, sing, dance, and create. Each youth will learn the ins and outs of putting on a stage production. They’ll help make sets and props, assist with costumes, and star in a musical production.
This years Youth Creative production will be Seussical Jr.
Seussical Jr weaves a story of friendship, loyalty, and love. Despite all odds, Horton and Gertrude band together to save the Whos, free Horton, and restore peace and unity to the Jungle of Nool. Seussical Jr teaches us the power of being unique, and the importance of fighting for your beliefs.
The program runs from November 1, 2022, to May 7, 2023.
