AGES 9-15

Perkel was started in 2011 with the philosophy that anyone can be on stage or behind stage. Some children thrive by singing the show stopping solo while another thrives from creating beautiful scenic work behind the scenes. Everyone has a purpose in Perkel and every child finds their niche on their own through their own curiosity and development. Perkel focuses on acting, vocal training, performance techniques and etiquette. Many of our performances help build sets and choose costuming while also performing. We welcome children of every background and experience to join our theater group and become part of our team!

Perkel Youth Theater provides three performances per season for the community.

Upcoming Fall Production

A joint production with PERKEL JUNIOR


The Lion King Experience


Ages 4 – 12

The Lion King Experience is an immersive, project-based exploration of theater-making where students develop and experiment with a variety of theatrical and 21st Century Skills, culminating in two productions of The Lion King, Jr. The Lion King Experience will allow everyone to explore theater from many different angles including: performance, design, directing, writing and technical theater. The rehearsal program employs student-driven, project based learning (as well as traditional drums and totems) to introduce students to the creativity and joy of the arts. The Lion King is a show unlike any other - from its global inspirations, to its magnificent score, to its design possibilities, this production is an opportunity to create a sophisticated piece of art with young people. Roles will be given out after the first rehearsal. 

4:30PM - 6PM

Performances: Dec 8 & 9, 2018
