Jeff Edmond, our theater director, works with our kids to write, rehearse and perform a new show each week. On Monday, they start with a fresh idea. Jeff does a great job of coaxing the story ideas from the kids’ imaginations! He will then work their ideas into a script for a real show for friends and family to be performed on Friday afternoon!
Brenda Gutiérez is our musical director. Brenda is in charge of the musical elements of the show. She is wonderful with the kids, and they learn a lot about music and singing.
