All-of-us Express Children's Theatre brings four major productions to the Greater Lansing community each year with the help of hundreds of youth from throughout the region. Seasons correspond with academic years, so the fall show is the first in a given season, and the summer production wraps up the season. Typical audition and performance dates are as follows:
- Fall Show — Auditions in late August, performances in November
- Winter Show — Auditions in mid-November, performances in February
- Spring Show — Auditions in mid-February, performances in late April/early May
- Summer Show — Auditions in mid-May, performances in late July/early August
Theatre lovers ages 6 to 18 have the opportunity to become involved in AECT. Youth participants are guided by experienced older teens and adults, but all cast and crew members are in grades K-12. Directors, stage managers, and adult crew heads are all familiar with theatre and are eager to work with local youth. Adults involved with AECT all pass a standard background check through the City of East Lansing.
