All aspiring actors welcome

  • Spring Theatre has been mentoring youth actors since 2011. Members are encouraged to write, direct, stage, and perform in original productions. The group also has its own “Spring Sings” album available for sale. The 2023 Holiday Tour will perform Dec. 1 through Dec. 15 — other details have not been announced.
  • Camel City Playhouse performs in a black box theatre space in the downtown arts district. The theatre company works to bring current plays to audiences — many of which touch on social issues. See “Reunion” by local playwright Lynn Hall Dec. 1 to Dec. 10.
  • 40+ Stage Company invites actors of all ages to find a role on stage or behind the scenes. The group focuses on plays with intergenerational themes — it also offers dramatic reading classes for seniors + actor workshops. See “Educating Rita” Dec. 1 through Dec. 10.
  • Spirit Gum Theatre grew from the creativity of three friends who wanted to share the stage. Now the group travels to different theatres around town to entertain audiences. See “Witch” Jan. 26 through Jan. 28 and Feb. 2 through Feb. 4.
