Centre Stage Productions

We offer a variety of opportunities for your child to get on the stage and in the spotlight.
Each class finishes with a professional showcase or fully-staged production! Everyone gets a part!

OUR MISSION: To encourage our kids in their confidence both on and off-stage, to provide a place where kids from all different walks of life find a common passion, and to let these kids have the time of their lives under the spotlights at "centre stage!"

OUR PROMISE: To put on age-appropriate shows that our performers and our audiences will enjoy.

With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
