Each year Hutchinson Theatre works through a “Play Reading” committee to research, read, and make recommendations to the HTC Board of Directors of what plays should be considered in the upcoming year. We have found this an effective method to get input from a broad base of theatre-goers about what plays are of interest.
We routinely deliver three productions a year. The productions are:
- Spring Theatre
- Summer Musical
- Fall Theatre

Additionally, we provide a youth theatre educational program called “Young Stars” workshop that runs in early Summer for youth ages 10-14. The HTC Young Stars Theatre Workshop is a four week immersion into live theatre. Students explore various areas involved in a theatrical production such as acting, vocal work, staging, auditioning, and theatre etiquette. While the workshop will culminate in the production of a one act play, the focus of the program is not the production but learning the fundamentals of participating in live theatre. This program also offers a opportunities for teens to apply for ‘mentorship’ roles as stage managers or tech managers.
