Flint Youth Theatre Summer Stage festival

PreviewYouth/Family August 10, 2015 Anne Kiley

Flint Youth Theatre presents its SummerStage theatre festival August 13-23 with two classic productions: Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat and William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Both shows are suitable for family audiences, and are a great way to introduce children and families to professional theatre.

 

Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat is a comedy of errors featuring that infamous, mischievous feline in the middle of it all! This show is recommended for audience members ages 3 and over. William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a classic tale that reminds us that love can truly make fools of us all. This production is recommended for audience members ages 12 and over.

The casts for both productions are comprised of adult professional company members and student company members in grades 7-12. In addition to rehearsing the productions, the students have had the opportunity to work on sets, costuming, and learn lighting and sound for a fully immersive theatre education.

Tickets range in prices from $12-$18 and are available to purchase online at <a href=”http://www.thewhiting.com” target=”_new”>www.thewhiting.com</a> or at the door. Please call Flint Youth Theatre at 810-237-1530 for more information.
