Children are cast by musical ability (pitch, range, and harmony), improv and acting skills, dancing skills, and attendance. We also sometimes consider the “look” needed for a certain character, as well as the on-stage chemistry between characters. Group requests are honored whenever possible. All children get a chance to shine! Every actor has a minimum of 2 lines.
All staff members have had extensive experience working in theater, in music, and with youngsters. Child-to-adult ratio is usually about 12 to 1.
We need your help to make it happen. LPRT is a family participatory program. Parents are our greatest strength! Parents are required to sign up to work a minimum of 5 shifts such as set up, clean up, selling concessions, supervision of actors (green-room), and more.
