Th
is workshop, for youth aged 5 through 18, will be held at the Black Box Youth Playhouse at 113 South Princess Street in Shepherdstown, as well as an outdoor location in Jefferson County.  It begins with small-group auditions on Saturday, April 17th. All registered youth are guaranteed a place in the cast or crew.  You will be contacted to schedule an audition time once your registration is confirmed.  If your child is interested in a technical spot, please check with us before registering, as we have only handful of crew spaces available. 

*Special precautions for COVID include rehearsing in very small numbers while indoors, and rehearsing and performing out of doors when requiring larger numbers.  Hand sanitizer, masks, and wipes are on premises at all times, and extra care is taken to clean common areas. 

Rehearsals for production workshops are scheduled with participants' schedules in mind. You will be asked for a list of date and time conflicts (for weeknights 5 to 7) after you register, and you can make changes to that list up to April 16, 2021.  We ask that, once the schedule reflecting these blackout dates is completed, you and your cast/crew member commit to attendance at all scheduled rehearsals. Unexcused absences may mean the loss of a role.   The only days which are absolutely mandatory are rehearsals during Tech Week, (June 7 through 10, 2021), and performances. 

Eight outdoor performances of Songs of the North will take place over two weekends, June 11 through 20, 2021.   (Fridays at 7:00 pm; Saturdays at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm; and Sundays at 2:00 pm). Please complete registration by clicking on the button above.  In the address line for your order, please give us your child(ren)'s name.  We will follow up on your registration by email.

The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life on Earth

Daytime talk TV reaches new atmospheric heights in this intergalactic virtual comedy with a wild, wacky cast of space aliens, Earth monsters, and surprise guests!


This entirely virtual workshop for youth aged 5 through 18 will be conducted via Zoom.  Unlike our live workshop, this one will bypass the audition process and hit the ground running with rehearsals on Friday, April 23, 2021.  The show will be cast during that first rehearsal.  Thereafter the cast will meet Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. (tech week, May 24 - 27, may run a little later) until opening night on Friday, May 28.  There will be four performances that weekend, Friday and Saturday at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.   All registered youth are guaranteed a place in the cast or crew.  

You will be asked for a list of date and time conflicts (for weeknights 5:00 to 7:00) after you register.  The director will create her rehearsal schedule with those conflicts in mind.  We ask that, once the schedule is completed, you and your cast member commit to attendance at all scheduled rehearsals. Unexcused absences may mean the loss of a role.   The only days which are absolutely mandatory are rehearsals during Tech Week and performances.
