Each summer, more than 50 children and teens gather at the BlueBird Theatre and work together to create magic on the stage! All youth ages 6 to 18 are invited to be a part of the Junior Orangeburg Part-Time Players. Auditions are held in late April or early May, and performances are the last weekend of July.
