The Round House Theatre Teen Performance Company is a pre-professional program for the next generation of theatre artists. The season-long program culminates in The Sarah Metzger Memorial Play which is directed, designed, stage managed, and performed by the Teen Performance Company, working with professional mentors to help guide them through the process. The 2021-2022 Teen Performance Company performances will take place at Round House Theatre on February 25-27, 2022.
In addition, company members attend master classes and special events, as well as gaining behind the scenes access to other Round House Theatre shows. This is an educational program, and while it is a significant time commitment, previous experience is not required to apply or audition!

History of The Sarah Metzger Memorial Play
The Sarah Metzger Memorial Play honors the memory of Sarah Emily Metzger, an active member of the theatre community in her school and at Round House, who was killed in an automobile accident during her freshman year of college. One of the Round House family’s lasting memories of Sarah is that, while still a high school student, she independently mounted a full-scale theatre production. Wishing to expand on the opportunities offered by her high school’s theatre department, Sarah worked to raise funds, secure facilities and a production staff, market and promote her production, and direct a full-length play.
After her passing, Sarah’s family worked with Round House to create The Sarah Metzger Memorial Fund as a tribute to the inspiring young woman. Through the generosity of many contributors, the fund provides the financial resources each season for similarly passionate and motivated high school students to create a fully-realized production with a professional theatre company.
