About TCjr

For 3 weeks in the summer, more than 30 TCjr participants, age 9-14, work with professional directors, choreographers, designers, technicians and performers experiencing and creating musical theatre. In addition to these professionals, college students studying the performing arts, along with exceptional high school students, will work alongside these young people, sharing their knowledge and experience, rehearsing and performing a professional-level summer stock production to be presented on the Theatre Charlotte stage. Recent TCjr presentations of Disney's Beauty and the Beast Jr and Peter Pan Jr, and Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka Jr were smash hits! This year's production will be The Wizard of Oz.
