Once selected, they rehearse up to six days per week (as needed for a role), and most are required to do serious additional dance and music training, in addition to managing schoolwork.

In addition to “A Winter’s Tale: A Musical Dickens of a Christmas Carol,” the 2017-18 season includes “Velveteen Rabbit,” “Curious George: The Golden Meatball,” “The Little Mermaid, Jr.” and “Junie B. Jones is not a Crook.”

On the main stage, the Morgan-Wixson theater is also producing two musicals based on children’s books: “Little Women” and “Mary Poppins.”
