Teen Performance Ensemble & Children's Theater
Are you a teen, age 16 or older who loves to act, sing, and dance and wants hands-on experience performing in front of live audiences? Our Teen Performance Ensemble and Prince George’s Children’s Theater were designed just for you.
Since 1996, the Teen Performance Ensemble has provided on-the-job training in musical theater skills to aspiring actors of high school age. In 2000, Prince George’s Children’s Theatre was established to give more teen performers the opportunity to earn money during the summer, while enhancing their abilities in acting, singing, and dance.
These two theater companies present original, one-act musical plays, written by local playwrights and directed by theatrical professionals, to children enrolled in M-NCPPC’s Summer Playgrounds and Camps. Over 100 performances are scheduled through the summer months. Graduates of these two troupes have gone on to study at some of the premier drama departments in the nation. From there, they have become professional actors, radio personalities, playwrights and theatrical directors. Auditions are open in the Spring to any student 16 years of age or older. If selected, actors will earn an hourly wage while providing live entertainment for their younger peers and gaining valuable experience.
