The Franke’s Youth Theater announces its production of The Claw: A New Children’s Theater Musical. In advance of this production, students in kindergarten through 5th grade are invited to join an audition workshop. Led by the show’s director, Deanna Flora, and featuring other guest artists, all students are welcome to sign up for this pre-audition workshop. No experience is necessary.  Limited Space so sign up early.  Scholarships are available.

Participation in the workshop does not guarantee a part in this production. This workshop will familiarize students with materials, and increase audition confidence and general theater knowledge. Join us for this fun and energizing workshop!

What is The Claw?

When an out-of-order claw game suddenly turns back on, all of the toys are ecstatic! Well… all of the toys except for Dot, a terrified stuffed cow. Dot’s desperate to hold onto her home and her best friend, Aiden. Can Dot conquer her fear of the unknown with some help from the Flair Bears, Mighty Mutant Power Turtles, Beanie Elders, and the all-knowing Mystical 8-ball?
