About Midlakes Theatre

  • The award-winning high school theatre club each year produces a fall play in Midlakes Black Box Theatre and a spring musical on the stage of the Midlakes High School Auditorium. Students work closely with a team of select directors to perform multiple community performances with emphasis given to acting, singing, dancing, and set building.

    Rehearsals for the fall show begin about the last week in August with performances typically in early November. Auditions for the spring musical begin in early December with performances typically in mid-March.
