All three performances of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, JR., scheduled for Friday and Saturday, July 30 and 31, 2021 are SOLD OUT before opening night!
The Youth Theatre Workshop (now in its 11th year) runs in the summer for two weeks – Monday through Friday – followed by three performances the Friday and Saturday after the 10 days of prep end. During those 10 days our Youth Actors (grades 1 to high school) are cast in roles, learn dialogue, music, choreography and assist with the behind the scenes components as well – costumes, props, set painting, and whatever else needs to be created. In addition, there are theater games, lunch time fun, and time to spend with others who are interested in the performing arts – both their contemporaries as well as the instructors who lead them. In addition to Youth Actors, older high school or college students have the opportunity to be student interns and assist our instructors throughout the workshop. This allows them the chance to either focus in a specific area (choreography, lighting, etc.) or try their hand at various backstage endeavors.
We’re very excited about this weekend’s performances and hope the popularity of our Youth Theatre Workshop continues to grow over the next decade and encourages youth in the area to get involved in the performing arts – either on stage or behind the scenes.
