Theatre: Youth & Teen
Williamson County Parks and Recreation is proud to operate an exceptional and award-winning Children's Theatre program. Children can participate in theatre classes or workshops offered at our various recreation facilities throughout the year.
Williamson County Parks and Recreation sponsors these Children's Theatre programs, with several offerings throughout the year:
- Our Star Bright Players Children's Theatre program is for ages 7 to High School Seniors and offers two large-scale productions per year.
- Our theatre group for younger performers (ages 5 through 8th Grade) is the Rising Stars musical theatre program.
- Straight to the Stars Youth Theatre is the newest addition to Williamson County Parks & Recreation's family of youth theatre options. Straight to the Stars will produce a straight (non-musical) play starring High School actors (rising freshmen through graduating seniors) during the summer.
Another component of the children’s theatre program is to welcome other touring children’s theatre groups. One such group is the Missoula Children’s Theatre. A tour team arrives in a given town in their “little red truck” loaded with a set, lights, costumes, props and make-up, everything it takes to put on a play…except the cast. The team holds an open audition and casts 50-60 local students to perform in the production. The show is rehearsed throughout the week and two public performances are presented at the end of the week. We also offer Musical Theatre Experience Classes and Summer Camps through our Rising Stars program.
