The Award Winning Poison Apple Teen Program

Apple Teens is an audition only performance class designed for experienced Teen performers ages 11-18. Apple Teens rehearse two days a week and the experience integrates multiple workshops in musical theater, acting, and performance techniques to help guide youth actors towards their goals in a polished professional looking final performance.

Apple Teens performs 5 shows at the Lesher Center for the Arts Knight Stage twice a year in spring and fall.  Teens must audition for each individual production of Apple Teens and participation in one does not guarantee being cast in the other.
