YOUTH / TEEN PRODUCTIONS
“TexARTS isn’t your standard educational theater program. This isn’t an organization that subscribes to the “if their kids are in it, the parents will love it anyway” mentality. It’s evident in their productions that TexARTS strives to develop young performers while entertaining their audience. That’s exactly what they accomplish.”
TexARTS provides varied and unique opportunities for students to perform in fully-staged musicals and ballets. Students enrolled in the Musical Theatre Academy work with professional creative teams to rehearse and perform in fully-produced musicals. Musical Theatre Academy shows are enrollment based. All students are cast in the shows and many shows are double cast, giving students more opportunity to take the stage.
