ST. PETER’S THEATER AND PERFORMING ARTS
We are a group of theater geeks that decided St. Peter’s needed a theater department of its own. With full involvement for acting, singing, pit orchestra, costuming, and tech support—it’s all there. From young to not so young, there’s room for you with us. Theater is so much fun that we want everyone to join us in our insanity. We offer two to three productions per year. Our season opens with a play in the fall on the VE Room Stage for a school age cast, and concludes with a large musical in the spring with casting open to the parish. Other productions might be staged as time permits. We sponsor several events throughout the year. A theater workshop trip is scheduled annually.
