After School Theater
and Art Program

Do you have a theatrical or artistic kid? Or one that is into lights, sound, and  video? Or all of the above?  Our after school program is for them.  Our Theater and Arts program is for High School students interested in learning new skills and exploring their existing talents.

The program will be taught by by Derrick Buschmann (Theater) and Michelle Fagan(Art).  ​Monday and other days as the schedule permits will focus on artistic projects and Tuesday through Thursday will be for Theater.  Friday is an open day where kids can come to the Theatre to work on art or theater projects, homework, and/or not do anything very productive at all :-)  

Here's some information on what the program is about:

THEATER: The Center Theatre after school program endeavors to provide a space for area youth to stretch their creative problem-solving muscles while learning and practicing the basics of theatrical practices and terminology. In addition to lending support for current live performances, each session of the program will focus on an element of theatrical design and produce a group project centered on that aspect.

ART:  The art program is very student-driven. We'll talk to the kids and find out what projects and media excite them and work with them on that over the course of the program. There will also be opportunities to help decorate our sets and make props and costumes for our live productions. 

Since it is a free program, we will not have  a formal registration process and kids can drop in when they're able, but if you would like to get on our mailing list to get updates and information about the program and scheduling changes, Please click here.
