In schools where after school clubs or classes are offered, Skyline Children's Theater hosts weekly after school rehearsals in a cafeteria, gym, classroom, theater, or other recreational space. All casts are directed by an experienced teaching artist.

 

After an initial audition day and 10-13 weeks of rehearsal that follow, a final performance is put on for friends and family. Instructions on how to put together a costume from home will be provided.
