Our organization is run by the Operations Team (OT). The OT meets once a month throughout the year to plan our Musical Theatre Intensive and summer show, as well as other events and fundraisers throughout the year. Our season and new Operations Team kick off in the fall, and the term ends in late summer after the show.
