Apple Tree Arts’ theatre programs encourage individuals of all ages to explore their experiences and identities.
We facilitate a safe and healthy environment for youth participants through an engaging and motivating curriculum led by educators and artists specializing in their fields. 

The Show Must Go Online (grades 2-6)

A frazzled drama teacher sends a video message to her students from her home office, announcing that their production of “Brushes With Greatness: The Dental Hygiene Musical” has been canceled! She tries to hang up, but accidentally leaves the camera running, as she receives a phone call from the principal who tells her: without the musical, the drama program will be shut down.  Her students don’t take the news lying down! Each responds with their own monologue/ solo with reactions and ideas to make their show happen.  Students will rehearse, film, and upload their own videos that, when played in order, tell the hilarious story of a group of passionate students desperate to keep their annual musical alive…online!
