Teen Theatre Ensemble

The Teen Theatre Ensemble is a performance-based group for grades 7 and up that rehearses one night a week, and several select Saturdays throughout the year.  TTE members will be featured in small-cast, full-scale productions to be performed in our very own black box theatre.  Our Director, Music Director, and Choreographer will run rehearsals like the pros, and our performers will gain the education, tools, and confidence to perform more challenging and mature material.  This group is a great opportunity for teens to hone their performance skills in a real-world theatre environment!

Our Show for 2022-2023

Newsies.jpg

The Teen Theatre Ensemble show for 2023 is Newsies!  The smash Disney movie-turned-musical featuring hit songs like Seize the Day, Carrying the Banner, and King of New York!  Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!
