Summer Youth Theater
Show Dates: August 10th, 11th, 12th, 17th &18th
Directed by Patrick Burk
A 70’s musical adaptation of the film classic All About Eve, Applause uncovers the harsh world of show business, where a
conniving young actress attempts to sabotage the career of a seasoned musical theater star. APPLAUSE presents show biz in all its glory and ruthlessness. “The strength of All About Eve, is the timeless basic story of treachery… told in terms of the witty, glamorous theater star and the mousy, adoring girl from the sticks who charms herself into the star’s private world, and then methodically attempts to take over her career, her lover, and her life.“
This tuition-free summer youth theater program is open to youth from ages 13 - 21. Auditions are held for the summer youth theater production in June, and rehearsals commence immediately. The participants rehearse evenings and weekends throughout the summer. They participate in fundraising (ad sales, open mic nights, community outreach, etc.) throughout the summer. They create friendships that last a lifetime.
