"SWEENEY TODD" (in rehearsal)

Fall Cabaret



Dance Rehearsal

Choreography Workshop Day 1



We are currently in the planning stages for Spring 2021, and, if at all possible, will be going forward with putting on our usual full-scale, student-led musical production!  We will, of course, continue to be mindful of the health and safety of all students, staff and designers in our company, and of our audiences. If it is safe for us to do so in accordance with county regulations, you will see a live musical production this May/June!

We have a show AND an amazing creative team ready to get started. We will make our official announcement during our Virtual Showcase on December 5th and 6th!  Audition information will be available mid-December!

…and we are taking action to amplify and support the Black voice.

* We are using our social media platforms to amplify Black voices in our community.

* We are committed to diverse, color-conscious casting, and expansive hiring of BIPOC designers, board members and staff.
* We are learning from Black leaders in the community about ways that we can effectively usher change into our lives and communities.
* We are retooling our thoughts and programs to engage in the work that needs to be done to amplify the black voice and of other marginalized communities.
* We are striving to be the leaders in this movement in our community and we welcome and encourage your engagement with us.
* We have formed an internal committee to actively focus on becoming an anti-racist theater company, so BIPOC are represented and amplified in the fiber of our organization.
This is only the beginning… 







We are


The Free Theatre was formed in 2018 by a group of dedicated high school seniors with the desire and drive to create a non-profit 501(c)3, student-run, tuition-free company for students in 8th-12th grade who are passionate about creating theater. In this company, students are at the helm of the creative process, working onstage, offstage and on the production side (in any area of interest that appeals to them, whether it be direction, music, costumes, PR, choreography, tech, set design, stage management, props, etc.) to help make the shows possible.
