The Encore Kids group consists of children in 1st - 8th grades. Their mission is to serve as a community outreach program of the Port Tobacco Players (PTP) by providing year-round onstage opportunities for kids with an interest in and a flair for theatre. We give kids the opportunity to explore and develop their talent by educating kids in the various terms and aspects of live theatre. Our goal as a traveling troop is to reach out to the community by providing them with quality performances done by the Encore Kids.
There will be no workshop on April 17.
