D.C. Everest Performing Arts
The D.C. Everest Performing Arts Department is an award-winning program that prides itself on generating high-quality productions multiple times a year for students in grades 6-12. We aim to lay a foundation for students who are looking for a successful experience in the arts, we build experiences that provide an introduction to theatre, and we educate future performers while we all work cohesively to achieve these high-quality performance opportunities. Not only do we receive statewide recognition for our efforts, but we always strive to create enjoyable performances that our community will talk about for years to come!
All donations benefit the D.C. Everest Performing Arts Department.
We’re bringing it home—shows that remind us to be proud of who we are and where we come from.
Join us in November for Junie B. Jones the musical. Based on the award-winning books by Barbara Parks, follow Junie as she navigates friendships, learning to read, and how to navigate first grade. Students in grades 6-12 will be allowed to audition. Auditions will be held in September, and the performances will be in November.
County Fair takes us to rural Georgia, where we meet the Stratford sisters who have returned home to deal with their inheritance, a massive and beloved county fair. Full of all your favorite country hits like “Chicken Fried,” “Hey Good Lookin’,” “The House That Built Me,” “Thank God I’m a Country Boy,” and so many others, County Fair is a New Musical Comedy (we are the first group to get the rights) about sisters, community, and being proud of where you come from. Students in grades 8-12 will be able to audition. Auditions will be in January, and performances will be in April.
Stay tuned on Facebook for more information about both productions as it becomes available. We can’t wait to have you back in our theater!
