Curtains up! Fox Cities PAC welcomes 6th year of Center Stage High School Musical Theater program

High School Theater

(WFRV) – Schools across Northeast Wisconsin have welcomed their students, staff and faculty back to school and that also means welcoming back high school theater.

Last year, several programs either canceled their shows, went virtual or continued in person during the COVID-19 pandemic but it’s a new year with fresh possibilities for everyone. This year 24 local high schools are taking part in the 2021-22 Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program through the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton.

On Monday, the Fox Cities PAC hosted their first workshop for eight local school Ambassadors. During those workshops, students will get a chance to learn more about the Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program and what their roles will be throughout the season. Each workshop will focus on aspects of theater, like design, marketing and promotions.

Fox Cities Performing Arts Center

The program was launched in 2016 and has been a successful piece of education in the community that celebrates all things local theater in high schools across NE Wisconsin. Throughout the school year, theater programs will have their shows critiqued by a team that will give feedback to directors and students which will lead up to the Center Stage High School Musical Theater Showcase event in May.
