Welcome to Debut Theatre Company! Our directorial, production, performance and technical teams, made up entirely of St. Louis youth, work to achieve successful performances while mentoring less experienced young performers interested in theatre. Debut engages, inspires, entertains and challenges audiences with theatrical productions. Our goal is to maintain and support the next generation of theatrical artists by providing experiences on stage, backstage and in all technical aspects of performance. We help provide a stage for youth who are passionate about performance in theatrical avenues. Debut strives to achieve a cast, crew and production team that provide mentoring experiences as inexperienced youth work alongside peer thespians with more experience. The company formed from the concept of two artistic youth in an effort to promote life-long learning and appreciation of the arts toward a more conscious and compassionate community by including performances that donate one-hundred percent of profits toward a charitable cause either globally or locally. We host an annual Acting Against Cancer production that specifically raises money for local cancer research. This youth centered company celebrates the essential power of the theatre to illuminate our common humanity.
Carrie: The Musical
Carrie, based on the novel by Stephen King, follows the story of Carrie White, a young girl with telekinetic powers. An outcast at school, where she is bullied viciously for her differences, Carrie is also lost at home, with a fervently religious mother whose love traps her in its maw. When PE teacher Miss Gardner, kind classmate Sue Snell, and boyfriend Tommy Ross reach out to try and help Carrie, it seems that for once, Carrie might have a shot at being accepted. But Chris Hargensen, the class’s most vicious bully, has other ideas. Pushed to the brink, Carrie’s powers threaten to overwhelm her, and devour everyone around her in flame.
