Cast of the Youth Series production "I Just Gotta Sing," 2017, a history of the musical contributions of African Americans
Swift Creek Mill offers educational Youth Theatre in the form of Youth Series plays performed throughout the school year and hands-on Summer Theatre Camps. Original plays offered as field trips for area schools and carefully crafted camp workshops and performances provide a much-needed boost to Virginia's art curriculum.
