Selected shows for our upcoming season!
Hagerstown Children’s Theater is a non-profit corporation that produces plays for children in the Hagerstown community. HCT also provides sliding scale tuition assistance to families in financial need. We are dedicated to elevating arts education, fostering a love of the arts that will last a lifetime and inspiring all children to be creative, smart and compassionate human beings. We accomplish this through our classes, workshops, summer camps, productions and preschool programs. We offer skill building classes in theater, music (voice and instrumental), dance, preschool programming and theatrical productions.
We are located in the heart of downtown Hagerstown at the Academy Theater! Our address is 58 East Washington Street, Hagerstown, MD 21740.
When you register for a theater, voice, dance or triple threat class, it’s like getting two for the price of one. Each student not only enjoys the once a week class, but they participate in our Halloween Spooktacular Production absolutely free.
We are excited to announce that this season, we will be performing our 100th production! We plan to celebrate in style!!!
We have many exciting happenings this season but the most thrilling is our performance at Carnegie Hall March 27th 2014. We have been invited to perform an original theatrical concert selection and are thrilled to be performing. Auditions will be held in Sept 2013. Please contact us for more information at 800.969.2603.
Our productions this season have been carefully selected to make sure we are challenging all of our students and offering a wide variety of performance opportunities.
