We are fire & Light Academy

This is where it all began. Before we became Fire & Light Productions, we were a youth theatre club that rehearsed in a church basement and googled how to make costumes. Now we offer a nurturing, educational environment where kids can learn all aspects of theater arts; set design, painting and construction, sound and light facilitation, music and stage movement, and direction and leadership skills. We educate nearly 100 youth, ages 8-18. 

But Fire & Light Academy is more than just a theater program; we consider ourselves a ministry. As our troupe portrays a story, we steal a glimpse at another person's perspective and walk of life. Fire & Light performs throughout the city at nursing homes and festivals.  We perform classic plays for the community twice a year and offer a musical camp for kids ages 8-18 each summer.  Theater is our form of worshiping the Father of Creativity.
