Centerstage Theatre Program


For Grades 3-5

About Centerstage

Our flagship performing program, Centerstage offers students in 3-5 grades the opportunity to be a part of a large-scale musical production each fall and spring.

Students will go through a full production process – starting with auditions, casting, rehearsals, tech, and finally, performances. Throughout the rehearsal process, they will develop their singing skills, learn fun choreography and hone their acting skills.

Local designers and technical professionals are brought on to put together a fully-realized set, beautiful costumes, and innovative lighting and sound designs. Our trained staff creates a nurturing and positive environment where every child can shine, no matter their skill level or role size. There is no better place to perform than at the J!

Centerstage Production – Fall 2021

James and the Giant Peach, Jr.
December 16-19
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements along the way.
