Making A Dramatic Difference

The CenterPoint Academy motto is “You Belong Here,” and nobody knows that better than the 716 people, ages 3-18, that we train in performing arts. What we really teach them, however, is how to be the awesomest version of themselves.

While the performing arts training we offer is top-notch, taught by the best local working artists, the end result for the vast majority of our students isn’t the Broadway stage.

Instead, we use the arts to teach lessons that matter in any facet of life – confidence, discipline, leadership, self-esteem, teamwork, friendship, and creativity. Our students learn these universally-relevant skills and become assets wherever they go – at school, at work, at church, and at home.

The Academy provides unique performance opportunities to these students on the CenterPoint Theatre stages, performing for more than 15,000 people per year, in over 125 performances of more than a dozen different shows.

It has been a delightfully creative adventure to direct “Beetlejuice Jr.” with our incredible cast and production team! Where there have been few conventions in presenting “Beetlejuice Jr.,” we have relished each creative opportunity to make the story clear, and fun for everyone. 


 While our first impression of the show might be “That’s strange, weird, off the wall, or bizarre,” we have enjoyed exploring new meaning in this piece. 


“Moving on” How can we move forward after an unspeakable loss without forgetting our past loves?  Charles cannot bear to even speak his wife’s name, while Lydia longs to speak of her mother.  Together, they discover how to move forward, while still holding Emily close in their hearts.


“I’m part of this, even though I don’t understand” To be included in a family or community, even though you may not be one hundred percent aware of all that is going on around you can be incredibly important.  Delia is such a sympathetic character, who finds herself almost part of a family struggling to redefine itself.  She fumbles her way into the hearts of Charles and Lydia, and ultimately (spoiler alert!) is embraced by her new family, including Barbara and Adam.


“Ready, Set… Not YET!”  Barbara and Adam come to appreciate that sometimes circumstances push them forward into a new situation for which they are not prepared.  Nevertheless, they find a way to claim space in a young girl’s heart and make a family together.


“Say my name!”  How important is it for us to recognize each other by name?  What does it mean to truly see someone, and give the acknowledgment they need?  What does it feel like to hear your name spoken, and know that someone appreciates you for who you are?  Our main character, Beetlejuice, fights for a single identity as he begs for a living person to say his name three times!


Identity, inclusion, remembering, and discovery are our themes!  We hope that you find our presentation of Beetlejuice Jr. to be a feast for the eyes, as well as nourishment for the soul.  Thank you for joining us, and beware the Sandworm!

The Academy Fan Club is our theatre guild.  It’s a group of grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, and other Academy fans. It’s designed to take the incredible spirit of volunteerism and support here and to organize it in a more formal, effective way. The Fan Club supports the Academy with teaching, feeding, building, breaking down, costuming, propping, teaching, fundraising, and other cool things that make the Academy awesome.

Most of these Fan Club opportunities don’t take much time, but they make a real difference. You can see more about the Fan Club here:

Most importantly, WE LOVE GRANDPARENTS!!!

Grandparents are some of our biggest fans, and lots of our interest in even forming the Fan Club was to involve the grands.  We want to include as many of them as possible.

To get involved, you can sign up online at the link above. And if you have questions, feel free to email Margo Beecher at:
