Registration for Play (Non-Musical)

Welcome to Roots’ School of Theatre. A children’s theatre for young performers in grades 3rd – 8th. Our productions are very special as we only accept 20 or fewer actors per production (depending on the show) to ensure quality of instruction and experience for each young actor. All young performers are guaranteed a significant speaking role in the production. 

This is Your Brain on Social Media

By: Ian McWethy and Carrie McWethy (McCrossen)

Something must be done about the children! When a school stages an intervention for three of their most social-media obsessed students, the ultra-righteous Amanda Boseman arrives armed with an array of cautionary tales. Firefighters are too busy taking selfies to fight fires! Romances are dictated by who the internet ships! Anybody could be a bot! Convinced yet? Inspired by interviews with teens about their online lives, This Is Your Brain on Social Media takes on both social-media madness and the grown-up hysteria over kids these days.
