Sauk Praire Theatre Guild
Living in a smaller community, teens that are serious about theater often find there are not as many theatrical opportunities as there are in larger cities. In 2016 Corinne Kessler, our first Junior Board member, started the Theatre Guild Teen Production Program - Midstage Theatre Troupe. The teen production not only provides a chance to act but also an unique opportunity for students to explore and control the production from start to finish.
The first play, Play the Cards You're Dealt, tackled the difficult topic of school shootings. Pushing the teens explore a wide range of emotions on the stage. The teens had local principals and liaison officer join them on stage afterwards for an audience talk back.
Student Acted. Student Directed.
Midstage Theatre Troupe is for high schoolers, including teens that are entering high school in the fall or graduating from high school this year are welcome to audition.
