Summer music theatre project seeking young participants


AUBURN — Children completing 2nd grade through 8th grade are invited to apply for Community Little Theatre’s annual Summer Youth Music Theatre Project. Registration will remain open through Wednesday, May 25.

The youth program will culminate in performances of this year’s production, “Dear Edwina, Junior” at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 16 , and at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 17. The first rehearsal will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 1, at Community Little Theatre, 30 Academy St. Auditions for roles in the show will also take place at that time. There will also be opportunities for program participants who are interested in learning about lighting, sound or other technical and backstage roles in the production; however, all participants must still attend the first rehearsal on June 1.

All rehearsals will primarily be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 5-8 p.m. The program will also introduce participants to special professional guests who will spend at least one hour each week teaching about various aspects of musical theater.

A $175 registration fee is due with the application. Some scholarship assistance is available; contact CLT for a funding application. To register for the Summer Youth Music Theatre Project or for more information, go to to download the form or call the CLT Box Office at 783-0958 or [email protected]
