What We Are

Apple Tree Productions is a company devoted solely to providing excellent after-school dramatic instruction through the production of plays.

Why We Teach Drama

Drama teaches self-starting, organization, confidence, leadership, responsibility and community, as well as acting, singing and dancing. The arts are a powerful tool to teach such things, and we believe giving students a realistic theatrical experience where they are required to participate in a professional yet caring environment is the best way to show them they are capable of greatness.

When We Rehearse

We rehearse at your school for one and a half hours after school, Monday through Friday. Times vary but are usually directly after school for two hours for four weeks. The end of the last week we will have Technical Rehearsals, when we add technical elements such as sound, lights, costumes and makeup, as needed. The schedule for this Tech is TBA, but may be approximately 1 hour longer than regular rehearsals.

What We Provide

We bring you a director/musical director and sometimes additional staff to completely run your show. We provide costumes (except shoes), a set, sound as needed, and we run the show for you during performances, running the lights and sound and helping backstage, again as needed and with the cooperation of parents and coordinators from the school.

Who Is At Rehearsals

The director, musical director and stage manager provided by Apple Tree will be at rehearsals with the students. We welcome any staff to stop by and watch when they can! Aside from at pick-up time, we do not allow parents to attend rehearsals unless they are specifically helping with the rehearsal. We find having parents or friends or other family is distracting to the students and ruins the surprise of their performance.
