Prescott Center for the Arts, Prescott AZ
  Teen Summer Stock Experience  

An exciting and intensive program exclusively for older teens (15 - 22) — especially those considering Theater as a career — but open to any interested teen, was inaugurated in the summer of 2010.  Teens are immersed in the process of mounting a fully produced musical on the PCA stage!  The production is staffed by professionals.

The experience is designed to give teens a taste of what it’s like to work in a professional setting.  The experience will be demanding and arduous, but well worth all of the hard work. 


The 2015 TSSE show is WEST SIDE STORY!

Young lovers are caught between prejudice and warring street gangs in this seminalretelling of Romeo and Juliet.

From the first notes to the final breath, West Side Story is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. Arthur Laurents’ book remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim  is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments.

Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.
