A limited number of work scholarships are available for those with financial need. Additionally, a limited number of reduced tuition scholarships will be available to low-income families who participate in the SLV school district’s Free Lunch Program. Please contact us if your family needs payment arrangements or requires any scholarship assistance before registering your child.


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. Staff bios can be found here.

Parent Participation

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.
