Summer Theatre Academy
Each summer Centennial Auditorium hosts a Summer Theatre Academy production open to all incoming Freshmen through just graduated Seniors from all area high schools.  Additionally, from time to time, college age alumni of the program have been welcomed back to participate.  Also, depending on show requirements, casting may include 6th 8th grade students and below as well.  Acting, dance, stagecraft, and makeup are just a sampling of theatre skills students may learn.  In past years we have had participating students from Dixon, Geneseo, Morrison, Newman, Polo, Prophetstown, Rock Falls, Sterling and other area schools.
