These are their stories.

Tickets are now on sale. Seating in the Studio Theater is limited and tickets for Youth Theater’s holiday shows sell quickly.
“It is an absolute blast directing these 31 students,” remarked Spence. “The kids really understand the material and are having fun with the parody style.” Spence has cast a variety of Beck Center students – actors, artists, dancers, and singers – who are currently enrolled in arts education classes.Law & Order: Fairy Tale Unit features a talented cast of 31 young actors ages 6 to 12 who have all joined together to present this hilarious spoof under Spence’s creative direction. “Even if you’ve never seen any “Law and Order” episodes, you will still have a great time.”
