Announcing Our DSC Spring Show:
Magic Treehouse: The Knight at Dawn KIDS

All Seats $12 — All Seats Reserved.

PLEASE NOTE: Patrons with babes in arms will not be seated. If your child or any member of your party is being disruptive, please help them to leave the theater.

About the Show

The two siblings, Jack and Annie, return to visit the Magic Tree House. As they read a book about knights and the middle ages, Annie is intrigued by the Black Knight and the mysterious quest one must successfully complete before becoming a knight. When she wishes to visit the castle in the book, the siblings are whisked away to medieval times. They set off to learn more about the Black Knight and his quest, experiencing a grand medieval feast, escaping through secret tunnels and dancing with enchanted suits of armor all in an effort to find their way back home.

Performance opportunities for developing voices

DownStage Center produces several "low tech" shows each season for which the key word is "nurturing." DSC programming features a "no tears" workshop style audition, a rehearsal schedule tailored to the needs of our youngest actors, and performance opportunities in small venues just right for developing voices. Additionally, alumni and MainStage performers are used as mentors and in production roles. Students ages 7 and up participate in DSC shows.

The DownStage Center Education Division offers year round camps, and classes for students ages 3 to 18. Musical Theatre Goes to School is our DSC outreach program.
