Don't take it from us.

Words from our Theatre Family

The Theatre Centre has been a special place in my heart since I was 6 years old. I grew up watching my uncle in productions, and that was where I got my passion to be an actress. I ended up going to Center for Creative Arts and majored in Theatre in college. Now I’m the dance teacher at Barger Academy of Fine Arts.

Former Actor and Current Choreographer

(This is) my first rodeo as far as a musical is concerned, but I love singing. I’m 64 years of age and just wanted to feel young at heart. I do here. This has just really blossomed my inner child, so I’m having a great time here at the Theatre Centre. I’m glad they gave me the opportunity to show my talents.

In THE WIZ, Dorothy sings, “When I think of home, I think of a place where there’s love overflowing”, and that has been my experience — I’ve been very much at home here. I always have that little magical something inside me when I come to this building. Thank you, Theatre Centre, for giving me this opportunity to give back to my community through the arts.
