The Round House Theatre Teen Performance Company is a pre-professional program for the next generation of theatre artists. Round House gathers the region’s most creative young theatre artists and provides mentorship to them as they work on a play at our theatre.
The program culminates in The Sarah Metzger Memorial Play, which is directed, designed, stage managed, and performed by high school students. The Sarah Play Metzger Memorial Play was established by the Metzger family and friends to celebrate the memory of Sarah Metzger, an inspiring and active member of the theatre community, who was killed in an automobile accident during her freshman year of college.
Round House Theatre is grateful to the Metzger family and all donors who have supported the Teen Performance Company, Play It Forward, and Round House Education, who together make this program possible year after year.
