Junior Thespians Play Day
Any Middle School (6-8 grade) is invited to join us for a day of theatre play! You do not need to be a Junior Thespian Troupe! This is a ‘learn about Thespians’ day, but also to foster community in our middle school theatre programs. Students will get a chance to see kids from other schools, and build relationships based on theatre.
