NEW GENERATION THEATRE ACADEMY
Re-introduced in 2015 as the New Generation Theatre Academy is LTC’s summer youth program. The program is structured around curriculum goals, and strives to introduce young people to the fun and educational depth of theater. As part of the camp, the students perform on the Longmont Theatre stage in front of the general public. Scholarships and internships are available. Many of our students have gone on to explore theater programs in college, or to return to our main stage production, and return as patrons. We have given them a love of the theatre.
Into the Woods Jr.
June 24th & 25th at 7:00pm
Into the Woods Jr. is a musical fairytale about wishes and choices. A baker and his wife wish to have a child, but a terrible curse plagues them. They embark a journey in search of magical ingredients to break their curse: a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn, and a slipper as pure as gold. Along the way, they run into Little Red Riding Hood on her way to her grandmother’s house, Cinderella arriving home from the King’s festival, and Jack, who has just grown a giant beanstalk! These quirky fairy-tale characters learn the meaning of empathy and perseverance as they pursue their hopes and dreams in a world that seems to have the odds stacked against them.
Music by the brilliant Stephen Sondheim will transport you into the world of these classic Brothers Grimm fables fairytales. Into the Woods Jr. showcases our talented youth theatre cast as these classic characters searching for a “happily ever after.”
