C. Hook Theater:
This is a self-supporting production relying on volunteer time and fund raising efforts. It takes a spirit of cooperation among the directing team, the production team and the families of the cast to create an experience of lasting value. The cast learns character analysis and how to interpret the parts, songs and dances as part of the complete performing arts process.
