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.

Thank you for being brave and coming to a show called Urinetown, perhaps against all reason and good taste!

Urinetown won three Tony awards. We swear we are not making this up. So, if you can get past the title, there’s actually a tremendous show here that you’d see done a lot more if it wasn’t called Urinetown. But it is, and here we are!

Urinetown is a gleefully irreverent satire of Broadway musicals. It’s a dark comedy that weaves together humor and music and melodrama with some ridiculous exaggerated themes about political idealism and social disparity and revolution and love and capitalism and the stories we tell and what we put our belief in. It’s just a big barrel of unexpected, almost the anti-Broadway musical Broadway musical.

It is not a happy musical. But it is an awesome one.

We’ve had an absolute blast putting this together, a show that’s totally different from lots of things these tremendous young people have ever done. And, as always, I’m so impressed by the way they rise to the challenge. These are crazy times in this world of ours, and these people give me hope. I’m convinced they can do anything.

Thanks for sharing them with us, and for trusting what we do. This Academy is a special, special place, and a blessing for so many.

Even when we do something ridiculous like put up a show called Urinetown. I hope it makes you laugh and, even, against all odds, gives you something to think about!

Danny Inkley – Director

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:
