There is nothing more important to us than the health & safety of our community. Though we cannot be on stage together at this time, it doesn’t mean we can’t stay connected, play with friends, and create more art!  

With our incredibly innovative and resourceful team we have created our new VIRTUAL SUMMER THEATER ACADEMY for kids, teens, and young adults! 

Our summer Wild Horse Stage Co. performance is “A Midsummers Night's Dream” and for our workshops we have even called in a couple Broadway stars, LA Casting Directors and a former NYC Rockette to give our young actors a professional edge!  

Join us this summer to gain skills, and learn self-confidence and teamwork in a supportive, positive and most of all FUN environment!
