Each year, nearly 900 school-aged students and their chaperones have the opportunity to attend the Backstage Xperience and the Barn Theatre. We hope to have even more in this season, even including some options for adults to have their own Backstage Xperience!

How does it work?

Form your own group of 4 youth per every 1 chaperone, and don’t miss this amazingly fun, educational opportunity.

  • FREE to kids
  • Chaperones pay just $41!

What is the Backstage Xperience?

Students will tour the theatre, including technical design areas that are typically off-limits to the public. They get to experience hands-on learning about professional theatre production during the interactive presentations of technical and performance aspects of theatre. Q&A sessions will accompany the demonstrations and their experience in attending the evening’s musical!

“It’s an amazing opportunity to spark students’ creativity and drive their passion for theatre as well as their passion to succeed in life.”

– Producing / Artistic Director, Brendan Ragotzy

“Students will learn the specific technical work that went into the show. They’ll see renderings of costumes, learn choreography for a dance number, and learn about the techniques that went into the construction of the amazing set pieces for the shows, and then see it all come to life on stage.”

– School Dean Penelope Ragotzy
