Acting Out

CenterStage Acting Out is a professional, touring, children’s theatre troupe that travels to schools and community centers to present educational and relevant musical theatre to students of 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.

Acting Out can provide financial assistance!  We have special discounts for Title I schools and provide discounts for multiple bookings.  These are provided on a first come, first served basis, so act fact! We can work with you to provide the arts for your kids!

2019-20 Season

Miss Nelson’s class is the worst behaved in the school and the children send their teacher over the edge. But the students are in for a surprise when their teacher is replaced by a scary substitute teacher! The students set out to find their beloved Miss Nelson, but is it too late?

When a young slave girl overhears a threat to sell her brother-in-law, her family plans to escape together by means of the Underground Railroad. Using disguises and with the help of a kind and clever family, our brave family navigates their way to freedom. An ensemble singing Negro spirituals adds haunting, poetic beauty to this gripping tale of reaching for freedom.

Room at the Table

The town of Moodyville is preparing for a New Year’s Feast. Joseph and his family are celebrating his bar mitzvah! But not everything is going to plan… Moodyville has run out of food, and Joseph has run out of friends! Will you help our heroes fix their feast, find their friends, and celebrate the New Year?  Through two well-known Jewish folktales, students will see our characters persevere through this lesson. The Jewish culture is showcased through costume, music, and the Jewish value of “appreciating what you have” – which is a universal value that all can come to know.

Public Performance Tickets Available Soon!
