Youth Musical Theater Company Staff

With a staff that consists of a dramatic director, a choral director/ accompanist, and an assistant director we can stage a musical for the cast to be proud of. A producer/manager who is proficient with set construction and lighting has enabled the shows to have relatively high technical quality.
