Saltwater Performing Arts, previously St. Marys Children's Theatre, is entering it's fourth season of Junior programs for elementary aged children. These little shows are big on fun and learning, with a focus on the basics.
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.
