Piedmont Players Theatre’s is excited to announce a new youth education program for young actors.  We proudly announce the introduction of the Norvell Stagecraft Production of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory.  Join PPT Guest Director- Gwen Matthews for a fun filled 8 week study of theatre performance culminating in a public stage performance of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 

Participants will meet Mondays and Tuesdays from 6:45pm to 8:15pm at the Norvell Theater.  The program will begin on January 15, 2018 and conclude with a public performance to showcase newly learned skills.  Gwen Matthews, who has directed numerous PPT Youth hits such as High School Musical, Little Mermaid, and Disney’s TARZAN at the Norvell, will lead the program.  This will be a great opportunity to learn, improve skills and perform on stage in front of a live audience.
