CastingChildren 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.
The StaffAll staff members have had extensive experience working in theater, in music, and with youngsters. Child-to-adult ratio is usually about 12 to 1.
Parent ParticipationWe 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 2 performances doing set up, clean up, selling concessions, supervision of actors (green-room).
Comp TicketsYou may earn two complimentary tickets for each child you have in the show by logging in additional volunteer hours. Comp-jobs include: set building or painting, costume making, garbage hauling. Sign-up for volunteer jobs at the first parent meeting.
