Little Express

Little Express theatre program is a wonderful opportunity for our youngest performers, aged 3.5 to 6.5 years old, to dive into the enchanting world of musical theatre. Within this program, children will have the chance to learn songs and dances, preparing them to showcase their talents live on stage. Not only will they get the thrill of performing as a group, but they will also have the possibility of taking on solo parts, fostering individual confidence and stage presence.

This program isn’t solely about the final performance; it also emphasizes the importance of teamwork and collaboration. Through rehearsals and group activities, children will learn firsthand what it means to be a part of a team and the value of working together towards a common goal. Little Express theatre program provides a supportive and encouraging environment for these young performers to explore their creativity, build their skills, and most importantly, have a lot of fun in the process.

I am thrilled to be launching Little Express, a dynamic new initiative catered to young talents eager to shine. Inspired by my own child’s passion for performing on stage at a young age, this program is designed to provide a nurturing environment for children who have a love for singing, dancing, and forging new friendships. I can not wait for you to join Little Express theatre program!Isabelle Seabolt

When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he’s handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn’t be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.
