Due to the rising concerns of public health and safety surrounding CoVID-19, the Audition Workshop and all auditions have been cancelled.

Please check in with us again for updates.

Many schools across Hamilton County have reduced or lost their theater programs due to budget cuts. To support schools and students, ArtsConnect has partnered with Dramakinetics, Mt Healthy School District and the Ohio Arts Council to bring an All School Community Theater Program to our region. 

The first theater production will be a Juniors musical, open to any student from any school who are between the ages of 10-17.
