New Teen Program

This is a great opportunity for High School teens to Audition and get experience in performing for a large audience, a Stipend will be paid to each student, with no heavy time commitments until last 2 weeks before show. We are looking for 15 students for this year.

This pilot program last year turned out great, so we are continuing into next year’s season of 2019-20.

We are doing The Princess and the Pirates.

Margaret would rather play video games than do her homework, so her Poppa tells her the story of Princess Margaret, whose family is kidnapped by pirates. The only way for her to save them is to use the Pythagorean Theorem to help the mermaids find the pirate ship, but did she pay enough attention when her tutor, Professor Archimedes, was trying to teach it to her? The Princess and the Pirates is a comic homage to the classic movie, The Princess Bride, but with a purpose: to remind children that there are real-life applications for math.

Auditions will be held on Monday, September 16, 2019 from 4-6 pm

This play will be performed by Local Teens for the Klamath Basin elementary students, Seniors in the Basin and a performance for the public. We have found a very fun & familiar play that the students will be able to interact with the characters on stage.

Directing this play is one of our own Youth StARTS Artist- Amber Burger.

Performances will be on January 16, 17 & 18th, 2020

Students will have to miss 1 day of school for the Matinees on January 16th, 2020.
