The First Act Musical Theatre Troupe is a select group of performers with strength in acting, dance, and/or vocals who represent First Act Theatre Arts  out in the community and at specialized performances. Students audition for the group late summer. Rehearsals are throughout the year and culminate in a performance trip to Chicago in the summer.

Members of the First Act Musical Theatre Troupe must meet the following requirements:

  • Be between the ages of 10-18
  • Be able to financially support all their individual troupe cost and travel requirements

The total troupe cost for the 23-24 season will be $1700. This fee includes the $350 Troupe Fee, all troupe performance gear, Worlds of Fun special performance event ticket and meal, 4 day/3 nights trip to Chicago (including round-trip train travel), and any other fun activities held for the MT Troupe during the year. The only additional cost that troupe members will have to cover is their lunches while in Chicago (breakfast and dinner included in the price).
