Instructors encourage budding performers to reflect on the world in inventive ways through movement, song, props, and all aspects of theatre. Students form lasting friendships, learn well-rounded technique, and develop a deep appreciation for the performing arts in a fun, nurturing environment.


The award-winning program and nationally recognized instruction serves to prepare students for the future by developing collaboration skills, confidence, and creativity.

Parkway Playhouse Junior is currently looking to expand our Parkway Playhouse Junior Teaching Artist family. We are looking for passionate, patient, and caring music, dance, acting teachers, as well as directors, choreographers, and technical theatre instructors. We require artists to have experience working with kids as young as 4 and as old as 18. Experience in the performing arts is required and a degree in either education or theatre/musical theatre is preferred.

Parkway Playhouse, located in the Appalachian town of Burnsville, NC, is a haven of theatre talent. While people come to the mountains to get away, Parkway Playhouse is a natural gathering place to connect. Likewise, we are an extension of traditional mountain talents: singing, dancing, and, foremost, storytelling. By giving rise to energetic new voices and through a wide variety of plays and musicals, we invite our audience into experiences that are thought-provoking, adventurous, and entertaining. Together we reimagine the world in every live performance, creating dynamic conversations that last far beyond the curtain call. This blog is will feature stories, helpful information, insight and features about the performances.
