Kids On Stage is a values driven opportunity for school age kids to grow in self-confidence and communication skills through the preparation and performance of high quality musical productions.  Through this process children learn fundamentals of practical theatre, vocal projection, stage presence, basic choreography and make-up.  Emphasis is placed on teamwork, self-accountability, commitment and self-fulfillment through hard work and accomplishment. Kids On Stage is a National Youth Theatre award winning theatre company dedicated to the development of life skills in children through the performing arts.  Since 1996, as founder and former director of Children’s Music Workshop, Doug Fordyce, along with his wife Jeri, has developed a solid reputation for impacting the lives of children with personal growth through music and theatre. 


Twinderella The Musical is the story of Cinderella’s long lost twin brother named Bob who lives in the same kingdom with his own wicked stepfamily. The separated siblings have enlisted the services of the Fairy Godmother, the Godfather (he ain’t no fairy!) and two enchanted gerbils to help wile their way into the exclusive royal festivities of Wychwood-under-Ooze. Bob has his sights set on Prince Percy’s all-kingdom baseball game, while Cinderella eyes the birthday gala for Princess Petunia. When the two strangers disappear at midnight after Cinderella hits a game winning homerun, the search is on to find the feet that fit the glass slipper and the muddy cleat! If you liked Shrek the Musical, you're gonna love Twinderella!

Partial scholarships are available to any participant on a “first come/first served” basis.  The application process is initiated by calling Doug Fordyce at 269 313-2795.  Parents of scholarship recipients are asked to help out with the production process by volunteering in some capacity.  No child will ever be turned away simply because of a financial need.
