WHERE THE ARTS COME ALIVE!

2021-22 Center Stage High Schools Announced

The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is pleased to announce the tradition of celebrating the achievements of high school musical theater will continue into its sixth year.

The Center Stage High School Musical Theater Program was launched in 2016 as an education initiative that celebrates and supports the achievements of high school musical theater while developing confidence, creativity and collaboration among high school students throughout Northeast Wisconsin. Education opportunities are provided all season long for students and educators to learn and grow together in their craft. This year, workshops and programs will be offered in both virtual and in-person formats, as opportunities allow. The program will culminate in a showcase at the Center on May 7, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the showcase go on sale on September 21 at 10 a.m.

"While last year looked different we were thrilled to be able to provide students with a virtual learning environment to expand their horizons and learn more about the performing arts industry from local and national professionals," said chief programming officer Amy Gosz. "Now that we are able to experience both virtual and in-person workshops and activities, the camaraderie between participating schools will once again encourage high school students to work together to accomplish their goals and serve as a public demonstration of the importance of arts opportunities in our communities."
