 Children spend 16-18 weeks in a fee-based workshop during which time they learn socialization, theatre terminology and etiquette, timing, choreography, and of course, the show itself.  Every participant earns a role, and their efforts, culminates with three live performances of the show. 

These adorable productions are not to be missed as the skill and effort put forth by the youngsters is truly unforgettable.


For spring 2022, Saltwater will return to the stage with the first show they ever produced, Peter Pan Jr.   Get your tickets today!


Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Jr. will be the first Junior workshop of Season 9.  Open registration starts June 16 and the workshop begins August 2 and is held every Tuesday from 4:30-6 and becoming more frequent as the show approaches.  This workshop will culminate with three live performances the evening of December 9  and December 10 with a matinee and evening performance. Our Junior Workshops do fill quickly, so don't delay.
