Oakland Little Theater: Ages 4-8


Cast members learn a mini musical with all of the costumes, lights, microphones, and scenery. Everyone plays a role but they do not have the stress of having to memorize lines - many, however, do. Children will be prompted during the show if need be.  Kids are not required to be able to read. This level is intended to be fun and age appropriate. They will have one performance on stage that is approximately 45 min long.

ADULT Musical Theater

Our adult musical theater program launched when loyal families requested the option. After years of watching their kids on our stage, parents decided they wanted to trade places and have the stage experience for themselves.  Our first session was a wild success with two over-sold shows.  Back now for the second session, adults of all levels are welcome to join.
