✨Check out our super amazing friends at Nolte Productions. Super excited to see our very own 🎭Shea Sanders🎭 in the titular role! Congratulations to all!

Nolte Productions Youth Theatre returns after a hiatus with the 2023-24 season! First up, Anastasia: The Musical running November 17-19 at Iowa Conservatory’s Workshop Theatre.

Her past is a mystery. Her future is an adventure.

Anastasia: The Musical is the spectacular new musical about discovering who you are and defining who you’re meant to be. This 60-minute adaptation of the Broadway hit is specially tailored for young actors.

From Tony winners Terrence McNally, Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, creators of such Broadway classics as Ragtime and Once On This Island, this dazzling show transports its audience from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing con man and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

Our very own Brock Sherman is going to be AMAZING as Prince Charming in Cinderella this weekend at CCA!👏👏 Break a leg, Brock!! We’re so proud of you!!

Brock Sherman
Role: Topher (Prince Charming)
Grade: 12th
Brock has been doing theater for 5 years. His favorite production so far was “Sister Act” where he played the role of Eddie. This was his breakout role! His favorite part was the very quick costume change onstage from a cop uniform to a disco dancer. Brock is inspired by his parents, his siblings and his close friends. His favorite quote is from Yoda, “Do or not, there is no try.” Brock would like to dedicate his performance to Sydney Emmel, my little sister Sariah, and Nash Fisher because he told me to! He would also like to thank Tracy Williams for helping him grow as a performer. He is going to miss performing in the musicals and musical theatre at CCA!
