A note from Lisa Schmidt, Playhouse Executive Director:


This is my 10th Laxson show and I could not be more excited about Aladdin! I am thrilled to have Garrett Miller on board as my Co-Director. He recently directed Playhouse’s Willy Wonka and Wizard of Oz with great success. For the older students, Garrett is going to be directing the acting scenes and I will be doing choreography. I will also be directing the younger students. Our Musical Director will be announced soon. Join us in having fun and working hard on our biggest show of the year!

See you at rehearsal!



We like to think of Playhouse as a place where young people can come together and explore the more expressive and creative sides of their personalities. Music, dance, theatre arts, and a bit of improvisational comedy are what we do here, and we have a really fun time doing it. Come and join us!
