Theatre Club


We had an amazing turnout for both rounds of auditions! We would like to do a final read-through for most characters to solidify distribution of roles. This will happen tomorrow Tuesday February 18th from 5:30-7pm.

Any questions feel free to contact Colleen Tuzzo via email at

Theatre Club      @ The REC

Theatre Club @ The REC began in 2015 as a way to give the children of our community the opportunity to explore their interest in the theatrical arts.

We are open to residents of North Tonawanda in grades K - 12. 

Participation is free. All we ask is that you pay us back with your passion and commitment to our production. 

Come join us! Don't "act" like  you don't want to.

Interested in participating?

REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED. Check us out next year if you're interested!


Theatre Club Audition and rehearsal information

We held an informational meeting on Friday, January 31. If you weren’t able to attend that meeting here is what we discussed


  • This year we are doing the play Alice (Alex) @ Wonderland. A modern day take on the classic story that can accommodate either a female or a male lead.

  • Auditions for parts will start on Friday, February 7 at 5:30pm.

  • Copies of scripts can be picked up at The REC any day after 4:30pm. 

Take a look at the arts you are interested in auditioning for and learn a few lines for that character.

  • There will no practice or auditions on Tuesday, February 4 or Tuesday, February 11.

  • Starting on Tuesday, February 18, auditions and rehearsals will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30pm to 7:00pm downstairs at The REC.

  • Once we get a better handle of how many participants we’ll have in the play, we will create a rehearsal schedule as some cast members won’t have to be at every one.

  • If you haven’t filled out a Youth Center parent consent form for you child since October 2019, one must be filled out. (We need a new, signed form on file for each new activity year. October through May.) Forms can be picked up at the front desk at The REC.

  • New this year, siblings of participants or non theatre club participants under the age of 18 will no longer be allowed in the theatre space during rehearsals. They will be allowed to hang out upstairs in the craft room, game room or gym, depending on their age. They will supervised and provided with activities.

  • Parents are welcome to stay and watch rehearsals but do not have to. You can drop your child off and pick them up when rehearsal has finished.

  • Theatre Club will be using the Remind App to assist in communicating about scheduling addendums or changes. An information sheet regarding how to obtain and use this use this app will be distributed and available at auditions and rehearsals.
