Theatre Festival

at Ballantyne Arts Center

We are thrilled to be back at the Ballantyne Arts Center with a full season of mainstage productions and theatre classes. For a momentous moment like this, it is only right we celebrate accordingly. We would like to officially invite you to our free Theatre Festival. Our festival will feature a theatre class with warm-ups, improv games and, singing and dancing to some of our favorite musical theatre songs. To end our day we will invite our students into the theatre to open the curtain and announce the 2021-2022 production season. This will be the first official announcement of our season and those in attendance will be the first to know! As much as we love our supportive theatre parents/guardians this is a student-only festival. We really hope your thespian will join us for this free event.
