The Award Winning Poison Apple Teen Program
Apple Teens is an audition-only performance class for experienced youth performers ages 12-18. Apple Teens rehearse two days a week and gain skills in musical theater, acting, and performance techniques. This experience guides young actors towards their goal of a polished, professional-looking final performance.
Apple Teens perform 5 shows twice a year at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Spring and Fall. Teens audition for each individual production of Apple Teen; participation in one does not guarantee being cast in another!
