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.

PRIDE & PREJUDICE

Friday, January 26, 2 & 7 PM
Saturday, January 27, 7 PM

Marriage is an inevitable fact of life for the five Bennet sisters -- Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty, and Lydia. With the family estate entailed away to their closest male cousin, their only hope to advance in life is to find a rich and single man -- and one has just arrived in the form of the very handsome and very well-off Charles Bingley. The kindhearted and beautiful Jane seems poised to make a match, but must contend with her overly zealous mother, his snobbish sister, and a slippery social ladder. And when Bingley's taciturn friend Fitzwilliam Darcy shows an interest in the opinionated and spirited Elizabeth, the situation becomes more complicated than either of them expect. The fire and wit of Jane Austen's classic 1813 romance shines through in this vibrant new adaptation. You won't want to miss this perfect romantic comedy.
