Now in Our 48th Year of Summer Musicals in Port!
We are a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to summer teen theater in Port Washington. We are not part of the school district, although we do perform at the high school and have a great relationship with the district. Please see the “Info” section of the website for more info.
Auditions usually happen the third week in May. This year, they are May 18th and 19th.
Yes, we do not make cuts. If your child is not cast in a named role, they will be in our world-famous rollicking ensemble.

Not as a cast member. Rehearsals begin the last week of school. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss possibilities for crew or pit orchestra members.
Attendance is mandatory. If your child misses one rehearsal, they will be cut from that number. If they miss more than one rehearsal, they will be cut from the show. Requested absences due to once-in-a-lifetime events will be reviewed by the Board of Directors in conjunction with the Director. We recommend that you speak to one of the Co-Presidents as far ahead of the event as possible if such a circumstance exists. You will be notified of the joint decision of the Director and Board.
For 2019, the cast registration fee was $300 for the first child and $275 for additional siblings. The crew and pit registration fee is $50. 2020 fees are still to be determined.
