Miamisburg High School Theatre is pleased to announce their new program with the production of Into the Woods, Jr. The program launched this past September after a gap of over 7 years.
A group of students and parents within the community pulled together professionals within the Dayton area to help them write the business plan in order to launch the new program. In conjunction with the school district, the organization is close to being able to raise the money to cover the costs for this show. Their ultimate goal will be to cover their production costs so that profits may go toward continuing the program.
Many area theatres have donated set pieces and materials, use of costumes, and use of equipment (Children’s Performing Arts of Miamisburg, Vandalia Youth Theatre, Dare to Defy Productions, and Playhouse South). Through these generous donations as well as the many hours of volunteered time by families and our creative team, there will be a full weekend of shows on November 18-19, 2016 at Memorial Auditorium.
