Next up, we bring you a “tale as old as time” that will delight audiences for the 2022 holiday season. A young woman living in a provincial town, trades her father’s freedom for her own and is imprisoned in a castle. A young prince trapped under an enchanted spell, must learn to love and be loved so he can be transformed into his former self. Time is running out; if he cannot learn his lesson then he and his household will be doomed for all of eternity. Singing objects, magic and an unlikely love story will capture the attention of the whole family in the spellbinding story of Beauty and the Beast.

VCT4TEENS' Lift Every Voice

Fostek Hall at The Jefferson Center
  • February 6th-17th, 2023
Based on a true story, Lift Every Voice explores the impact of racism in an urban high school. When a racist message gets posted on social media and shared around the high school, students find themselves examining loyalties, privilege and even their own history. Critical social issues that are prevalent in the U.S. take center stage in this production. VCT4TEENS is a program that provides a unique and creative approach to connecting with young people about current issues through a theatre arts experience.

The amazing adventure of a young orphan boy will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. This story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization. Families will fall in love with the magical sweetness of a young boy on a whirlwind musical adventure to find his chosen family!
