Not only do we provide programs for youth to learn more about the theater- but we give them the opportunity to be a star!
LNT offers two week performance camps, as well as a two week technical theater camp.
Our youth performances are one of a kind and an outstanding opportunity for the participants to learn about every aspect of theater, its protocols & etiquette, and to experience the challenges of an intense professional rehearsal process. They are the culminating projects of one and two-week intensives.
Supported and lead by professional directors, designers and technicians, our Theater FOR Kids BY Kids productions are fully staged and designed.
The teaching artist/designer to student ratio averages 1 for every 3-4 students – all the resources of Lost Nation Theater and its staff supporting them.
Recent Theater FOR Kids BY Kids shows include: Peter Pan Jr., Red!-the long journey home, Velveteen Rabbit, The Three-No FOUR-Little Pigs, Alice in Wonderland Jr, Willy Wonka Jr, Dr. Seuss Fast & Loose, Into The Woods, Jr, R&J-abridged, Annie Jr, Ferdinand The Bull, and The History of the American Songbook Cabaret.
These opportunities are available for ages 9-21 (depending on the camp).
- Memorized Monologue (can be from play, poem, or book) approximately 1 minute in length
- 16 bars of song (theater production camp, for ages 9 & up);
32 bars of song (musical production camp, for ages 12-20)
- Songs are sung a capella (no accompaniment provided)
- Audition Director will likely ask you to make changes to your monologue and "play" with you a bit.
This is to explore how you collaborate or take direction. It doesn't mean you did something wrong.
For the director, "playing" after your prepared audition is done is the fun part!
- Bring Picture and Resume (history of shows, training, age & height, etc)
