CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Casper Children’s Theatre is celebrating the grand opening of their new location at 949 N. Durbin Street Thursday evening.

The night will kick off with a ribbon cutting welcoming the community into the new facility. Community members will have the chance to see the new space and learn more about the upcoming season. Members of the Casper Children’s Theatre will perform a short show following the ribbon cutting. This is the first show CCT is able to welcome the community back for since the pandemic.

“Our main mission is to get kids involved with theater in every aspect. We know that kids who are involved in theater are more empathetic and understanding, and that they have sort of a greater connection to the human heart which I think is amazing, and we could all use that right now,” said Audrey Egan, one of the program coordinators for CCT.

The ribbon cutting starts at 5:30, and all activities are free for everyone.

The Casper Children’s Theatre kicks off their upcoming season with High School Musical Jr. with rehearsals starting next week. They will also be doing the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Annie Jr. later this season. Shows are opened to anyone between the ages 8-18.
