CenterStage Acting Out is a professional, touring, children’s theater troupe that travels to schools and community centers to present educational and relevant musical theater to students at all grade levels.

No buses, no permission slips, no parent chaperones! Acting out brings full productions with professional actors, set, costumes, props, musicians, sound system, etc. directly to your school.  We can perform in any space (classroom, gymnasium, library, etc.). Our programs run 60 minutes and can accommodate any number of students.

To enhance the educational experience, our actors lead a “talk back” after each performance and suggested activities, lesson plans and study guides are made available 30 days before the performance.
