Carroll County Arts Council Childrens Theatre Troupe

Children’s Theatre Troupe

Audition information for current shows is posted at the bottom of this page when it is available.

The Arts Council mounts fully-staged musicals featuring young people from the Carroll County area. Families pay tuition to be part of the cast that covers expenses, including a script, cast t-shirt, most costume pieces, 2 complimentary tickets, and other fees associated with producing a high quality show. This program is broken down by age group to help young actors develop a better understanding of the theatre process and encourage a lifelong love of the performing arts. Performing in this educational experience does not earn service learning hours.

In the spring the Arts Center produces a show for elementary school-aged actors in grades 3-5. Cast members are introduced to theatrical terminology and drama games while creating an artistic performance. The music and choreography are simple but fun with opportunities to showcase specific talents. This is a fundamental introduction to performance in a supportive and positive environment.

The fall production is for middle school-aged actors in grades 6-8. Actors are challenged more in this age group through character development, and levels of music and choreography varying from simple to complex. This program is an ambitious in-depth experience with a high production level.
Occasionally the Arts Center produces shows for high school students in the summer.

High school students interested in theatre can apply for volunteer crew positions with the Children's Theatre Troupe. A limited number of positions are available for each production. These positions are voluntary but do count for community service or could be applicable for school credit depending on the school.  Application forms will be linked below when available.

Photos from past productions can be found on our Flickr Page.

Classes, workshops, and summer camps are also scheduled periodically for ages 2-18. Click on the links to see if there are any current enrollment opportunities.

Show Description:
With its poignant story and catchy Caribbean-flavored score, Once on This Island JR. is a highly original theatrical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s popular fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical by the legendary writing team, Ahrens and Flaherty.
Through almost non-stop song and dance, this full-hearted musical tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island, guide Ti Moune on a quest that will test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and even death.
