21/22 Season Updates

The Howard Aronson Metro Scholars is a competitive program that gives high school juniors the opportunity to learn how a regional theater operates through workshops, performances, and assistantship opportunities. In the 2021/22 Season, twelve students attended our productions and met in a hybrid setting that included both online and in-person workshops as well as projects with our artistic, administrative, and production departments. Our students were hard at work this season with a variety of workshops that were all made possible by YOU! Here is an update as to what they got up to this season.
