The Plymouth Uptown Players (PUPS) is an experimental theatre group that is made up of elementary and middle school aged children. Each season (Fall and Spring) children are invited to participate in open auditions. The program is a cooperative effort between the Plymouth Community Arts Council and Tipping Point Theatre. All children who audition will receive a part. The program culminates in a play performed on Tipping Point Theatre's professional stage in downtown Northville. The performances are open to the public.
The program teaches children everything about producing and acting in a play including costumes, sets, and working together as a team with cast mates.
Complete information and audition packets will be available at the PCAC office and on our website,www.plymoutharts.com under Programs/Plymouth Uptown Players.
