This Production is fun for all ages.

Birnton Productions is excited to announce the auditions for their second Spring production. Birnton Productions mandate is to produce theatre and offer educational programming that introduces kids and young adults to the power and magic of live theatre and drama. Our goal is to not only foster the development of beginning artists but also to excite a young generation into becoming life long patrons of the arts.

The Commedia Princess and the Pea
Arlequin is afraid he’ll be stuck playing the role of the pea, but he ends up getting to play the prince. The troupe romps through a series of hilarious princess tests with great slapstick humor! A fairy godmother in this story? Rosetta’s playing the role, whether the troupe likes it or not!
