Seventh year of Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program welcomes record 31 schools

The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center announced that the tradition of celebrating high school musical theater achievements will continue into its seventh year with a record 31 high schools participating.

The Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program was launched in 2016 as an educational initiative that celebrates and supports high school musical theater accomplishments while building confidence, creativity, and collaboration among high school students in the North -eastern Wisconsin. Educational opportunities are provided throughout the season for students and educators to learn and grow together in their craft.

This year, students will participate in workshops including a marketing workshop with the Jesus Christ Superstar marketing team, a monologue workshop with the actress, Thanks to ginger and a dance workshop with local dance professionals. Some students may become Student Ambassadors to represent the program or join the auditioned ensemble, Encore Singers, to perform at Center-sponsored and community events. The program will conclude with a red carpet, Tony Awards-style showcase at the Center on May 6, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the Center Stage High School Musical Theater Showcase go on sale Wednesday, September 28 at 10:00 a.m.
