Civic Arts Stage Company is a youth and family theater company dedicated to enhancing literacy and love of language. By enacting the stories of our most beloved children’s classics, our actors experience the great joy of reliving the stories we grew up with, while the audience watches the characters jump off the page and onto the stage.
Civic Arts Stage Company is proud of its quality productions, supported in large part by a relationship with Bay Area Children’s Theatre. Their extensive network of professional directors, stage managers, designers and actors offer a supportive and educational experience for our actors, which translates into a quality and educational performance experience. All productions are cast from auditions open to all residents of the Pleasanton and Tri-Valley communities. All youth ages 10-18 are encouraged to audition. No prior experience is required.
Note: All Civic Arts Stage Company productions are cast by audition only. There is a required program tuition fee after actors are cast in each production.
Civic Arts Stage Company productions are for young actors ages 10-18. Youth must be 10 on or before the first day of scheduled rehearsals for each of the three productions during the school year.
In this hilarious holiday classic, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids—probably the most inventively mischievous kids in history. You won’t believe the mayhem—and the fun—when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!
