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 – Spring 2022

Honk, Jr.
May 18-22, 2022
Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.
