Children will learn and have fun as they prepare musical presentations directed by adults skilled in music, theater and teaching.

In the fall of 2015, the children performed "Miracle at the Christmas Cafe," directed by Denise Kelly. The winter/spring production was "Are We There Yet?" – a retelling of the Exodus story. In the fall of 2016 the children prepared a Christmas season musical drama "The Inn Crowd: A Christmas Musical for Advent Night," which was performed on Family Advent Night.

For more information and schedule for the winter/spring of 2017, please contact Dale Doud.
