Throughout the 2019-20 school year, 23 local high schools will participate in the Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program, an education initiative that celebrates and supports the achievements of high school theater programs in Northeastern Wisconsin.
During the program year, participating students will have the opportunity to attend workshops with professional artists at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center and will have the opportunity to ask questions and explore different aspects of theater, giving them a deeper understanding of the live performing arts industry.
