Storybook is happy to once again introduce a daytime program specifically for age 7-18 homeschooled students.
Storybook Performance Classes
This homeschool performance class is intended for any students ages 7-18 who would like to be involved in a big production!
If a student's 7th birthday falls during the current semester, they are eligible to participate.
It is helpful for students to be able to read, but not required.
Please read full schedule of rehearsals and performances before registering.
Each student who registers will receive a speaking role in the production unless they specifically request otherwise.
Registration will close when the maximum number of participants has been reached.
Auditions on the first day of class will determine part distribution.
No previous acting experience required to participate.
Performance day (Friday shows), students will come to rehearsal at regular time and stay all day until the show opens.
Parents will be asked to assist during tech week by running ticket/concession sales and assisting at the studio.
One schedule exception:

The Children's Literature Association named this "the best American children's book of the past two hundred years," and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling and utterly practical theatrical presentation. All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the "miracle" of her web in which she writes, "Some pig." It's the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte.
Join us for Storybook Theatre's homeschool book club, where we will be studying and discussing Charlotte's Web by E.B. White! Find more details here. Cost is $20/family when participating in the production as well, or $45/family if just joining the book club. Book Club is on Fridays from 3-4pm.
