Enjoy a rollicking evening of music and laughter, as opera stars, professional actors, dancers and Creative Stage kids showcase the best material devised in our popular Musical Theater Builders program, spanning the past nine years.
From Ninja Princesses and Space Invaders to Puccini and Mozart, all scenes and songs are inspired by children but feature familiar operatic, symphonic and Broadway tunes. This is a fundraising event you don't want to miss!
All proceeds will go to the Creative Stage Community Outreach Program, designed to keep tuition affordable for all families, bring theater into under-served communities, and to promote diversity in the arts.
