The Visual and Performing Arts theater program kicked off Monday, June 5, and is once again offering Wabash County youth an authentic theater troupe experience.

During the program, first through 12th grade students dedicate three weeks of summer afternoons to memorizing lines, music and blocking for one to two final performances starting Thursday, June 22.

While the program normally puts a bit of pressure on its actors, this year’s seventh through 12th grade students are feeling a bit of heat as they prepare to perform Disney’s “High School Musical.”
