Theatre fun for all ages!

Theatre offers a multitude of talents for students to cultivate and display: acting, singing, dancing, and creation of sets, props and costumes. By allowing students to explore and experience all the diverse components of a finished theatre product, students create their own ensemble—a community centered around the stage. At Apple Tree Arts, our theatre arts programs are developed with this philosophy in mind. We believe that every student has a story to tell and makes a meaningful contribution to the art of theatre.

We welcome and invite you to join us!


Musical Theatre Programs

ATA Theatre Contract_fillable form – needs to be signed by all theater participants. Each enrolled student will receive one by email as well.

Our musical theatre programs provide students with the opportunity to learn about and hone their skills in three different theatrical focuses: acting, singing & choreography. Each skill set is given separate instruction and later added together to form the finished product, a musical production. The level of difficulty and complexity of instruction and productions are tailored to specific age groups, ensuring each child a rewarding experience that matches their abilities.
