Discovery Productions – Open to the public

Since 1938, LCT has been creating productions for young audiences using young artists as actors and occasionally as technicians. As our productions became more and more popular with school groups, and our professional acting company expanded, we realized that fewer young people would be able to participate in subscription series productions. Many of our Main Stage shows require students to miss up to 20 days of school in a row! That makes it very difficult to keep up with schoolwork. To ensure that LCT retained its tradition of offering young people a variety of performance and technical opportunities, we began the Discovery Series in 1995. Our goals were relatively simple:

  • Provide challenging performance opportunities for young people by presenting plays with central characters that are also young in age.
  • Encourage and mentor students in the many areas of technical theatre.
  • Shorten the run of the show so as to limit the number of missed school days.
  • Provide LCT’s professional staff as support to improve the quality of our youth performances.
