What is is like directing for Young Footliters?

Young Footliters is one of Iowa's premiere children's theatres, and we're fortunate to have resources and support to make our volunteer theatre programs possible! Young Footliters directors work with our Artistic Producer Elizabeth Tracey to develop the vision and rehearse the performers for our productions. You'll be supported from first audition to closing night so you can focus on your vision and unique way of telling a story. 

We're a community theatre, and there are times when we all "pitch in" to make everything possible. But, you're not on your own. Marketing, ticketing, budgeting, receipts and payments, technician recruitment, and many other duties are expertly handled by the CCPA staff and Young Footliters board committees. From headshots to press releases, we make sure each production is professionally produced.
