LYTE’s 2024 Spring Junior Play Program




COST $350 per child

LYTE’s Spring Junior Program is back, but this time with a twist! Our Spring Junior Play Program has participants perform a play in Procunier Hall at The Palace Theatre. Our Spring Program, shorter in length than our Main Stage Musical Program, gives participants the opportunity to work on a play (non-musical) in a smaller venue. The program culminates with performances in Procunier Hall in May.

This spring, LYTE will be presenting TWO Junior Spring Plays. Each with its own rehearsal schedule and performances. On the registration form, parents will be able to select which show they would like their child to be in.

It’s Dad’s turn to tell his three rambunctious kids their bedtime stories, but when he gets fuzzy on the details, the classics get creative: a prince with a snoring problem spices up The Princess and The Pea, The Boy Who Cried Wolf cries dinosaur instead, and Rumpelstiltskin helps turn all that pesky gold into straw. You may think you know your fairy tales, but not the way Dad tells them.”

Show #2

SHOW # 2: Pirates! Theodore Thud and the Quest for Weird Beard, by Joshua Mikel

“A friendly game of pirates becomes all too real when overzealous Theodore accidentally falls into a giant sinkhole and wakes up to find himself amongst real high sea swashbucklers. Before getting back to the real world, he is forced on an epic journey with his companion Harriet the Ghost in a quest to find the notorious pirate Weird Beard and foil the mutinous Mr. Clunky Bones. Will Theodore be able to save Captain Cramp Hand’s ship from falling into evil clutches and return to his friends in time for ice cream?”
