Roser Youth Performing Arts

Roser Youth Performing Arts is a new opportunity for students who are specifically interested in developing and enriching their performing arts interests! It is suggested that children between the ages of 8 and 10 participate in our first venture. Children who are outside of the 8 to 10 age range, but who are especially interested in the performing arts, are certainly welcome to participate as well! 

As this group is slated to perform in a multi-generational cantata for its first event, it will grow with the possibility of performing a children’s musical in the future. We are looking for students who are especially interested in singing and drama. There are no speaking parts in our first venture, but the concentration will be on singing first, and of course acting! Come join this exciting new venture with us at Roser! READ MORE
