Acting UP is the premiere group in the SCERA Youth Theatre program and requires a commitment from mid-August through mid-May. Performance opportunities abound, and students participate in the SCERA Youth Theatre Holiday and Spring Music Revue, present several Sunday musical firesides, perform an outreach musical at locations throughout the state, and are cast in their own full-scale musical production each spring. A musical theatre competition tour to California is also offered in February.

Rehearsals are held on Saturday mornings from 7:30-10:30am at SCERA Center for the Arts, with additional rehearsals scheduled as needed.
