About us...

 The Fort Wayne Summer Music Theatre was established in 1998.

Our goal is to offer a summer program for students who have a high interest in theatre. Fort Wayne Summer Music Theatre often provides a bigger challenge to students as actors, singers, dancers, musicians and technicians than they would find in their own school programs. Summer Music Theatre offers them an eight week intensive production schedule.

Any child may audition for any role; none are pre-cast or limited to any child because of 

their race, weight, handicap, or sexual orientation.
