Over 65 Years of Performing Arts 🎭 Education!

Have you ever wondered why Singing Onstage is in a residential area? Read on to learn more about our history.

The story of the Pugh Street studio began in 1955, when Betty Jane Dittmar and her husband John built 1108 South Pugh Street as a modern dance studio. For 50 years Betty Jane taught students creative movement and ballroom dance at Pugh Street and the Strawberry Hill Centre for Creative Arts.

In 2003, her daughter and son-in-law, Heidi and Richard Biever, started Singing Onstage in the same Pugh Street studio. Leah Mueller and her husband Jared Yarnall-Schane bought the studio in 2022 continuing Singing Onstage and the legacy of performing arts on Pugh Street.

The Pugh Street studio has been a women-led business in constant use by aspiring dancers and musical theatre performers for over 65 years!

Fall Class Feature ✨❄️

Students will love this heartwarming stage adaptation of the celebrated animated film. Join Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Sven, and all of your favorite characters as they embark on an epic, ice-filled journey of self-discovery, camaraderie, and the real meaning of true love. Adapted for young performers, this musical includes favorite Frozen songs such as “Love Is an Open Door,” “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?,” and “Let It Go,” as well as wonderful new songs from the Broadway production.

Fall Class Feature ✨🌍

Enter the world of the distinguished and celebrated writing team, Kander and Ebb. The World Goes 'Round is a stunning r***e of the songbook from the multi-Tony award-winning team. Filled with humor, romance, drama, and nonstop melody, this title is a thrilling celebration of life and the fighting spirit that keeps us all going. From Cabaret to Chicago, the nonstop hit-parade features unforgettable gems, including "Mr. Cellophane," "Maybe This Time," "Cabaret" and "New York, New York," seamlessly interwoven into a passionate, harmonious, up-tempo evening of musical theatre.

Fall Class Feature ✨🌳

Stephen Sondheim's beloved musical combines fairy tales to tell a compelling story of what happens when you enter the woods! Into the Woods JR features all of your favorite characters — Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), and the Witch — in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.

With sophisticated music and rich storylines, this class will be exciting for all aspiring singers and actors.

We are having a great week with our Dear Edwina JR campers!

Fun fact, Dear Edwina JR was one of the first shows Singing Onstage produced 20 years ago when it was founded!

Swipe to see the picture of that original cast that we recreated with our campers today. If you look closely, you can see our director, Leah, in the same spot in both pictures!

We are excited to announce our new look, website design, and Fall classes!

The jester or fool’s hat is rich with symbolism. Jesters entertained audiences with songs, music, storytelling, and physical comedy. Shakespeare’s fool served the dramatic function of the truth-teller in his tales. Locally, the Jester or Fool has been an enduring symbol at the Central PA Arts Festival!

The fool’s hat embodies our Singing Onstage values of Community, Process over Product, Service, and Play. Our students will learn how to be truth-tellers and storytellers as they participate in our classes and performances.

Thanks to Lancaster-based company Gumption Design Co. for our new logo and website!

Meet our Teachers!
Spotlight: Rose Hanahan, The Little Mermaid JR Choreographer. Rose (they/them) is thrilled to be part of the Singing Onstage Team and sharing their love of theatre and storytelling! Rose has over 15 years of performance experience in a variety of mediums including training in dance, voice, and acting. Rose attended Penn State’s School of Theatre, where they studied various acting techniques and theatrical approaches. In 2020, they earned their B.F.A. in Acting and began pursuing professional opportunities. Rose started taking classes at Singing Onstage when they were 13 years old and began performing with FUSE Productions shortly after, so they are honored to be back at the Pugh Street studio, continuing the tradition of performance, imagination, and play!

Where Everyone Gets To Shine!

We believe everyone has a need for expression and creativity. Helping to tell a story is one way to fulfill that need. Telling a story is far more important than simply gaining the satisfaction of being in front of an audience. Stories give us a sense of order, a sense of belonging. They truly help us progress in an uncertain world.

Theatre and musical theatre are deeply profound ways of telling stories. Both actor and audience experience the joy of a story well told. Singing Onstage provides students ages 3-18 a nurturing environment to explore their connection with singing, movement and acting. Many families have seen beautiful growth in their students through participation in Singing Onstage. In the words of one parent:

“This family run business is one of the great gifts of living in this town. I don't know of any other children's theatre program that offers this level of quality skill building in such a positive and nurturing environment. Young people from any background and experience level will enjoy themselves and grow doing a show with Singing Onstage. My daughter has done a number of shows here over the past four years and each one has helped her to flourish in other areas of her life. She is not an isolated case as every friend, family member, and neighbor we have recommended it to has been amazed by the results. Some of the shyest children I know feel safe enough in this setting to gain miraculous levels of confidence that transfers into their social and academic lives. Of all the investments I have made in my children's developmental experiences, I consider this to be one of the clearest values.”

We hope to see you soon at Singing Onstage!
