JUNIOR LYRIC PRESENTS

YOUNG ARTIST SERIES

AUDITIONS BEGIN ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 20th at 2pm

The Atlanta Lyric The­atre proud­ly announces the launch of its new Young Artist Series for actors, dancers, and singers ages 11 – 18. The new com­pa­ny will be led by a team of teach­ers who are also the­atre pro­fes­sion­als and work­ing artists. The pro­gram aspires to:

  • Pro­vide a pos­i­tive and encour­ag­ing envi­ron­ment for young artists to learn and hone their craft.
  • Pro­vide mul­ti­ple oppor­tu­ni­ties for young artists to per­form through­out the year in a pro­fes­sion­al atmos­phere.
  • Cre­ate extra­or­di­nary the­atre expe­ri­ences for our audi­ences at the Lyric’s “Black Box” Stu­dio The­ater on Mari­et­ta Square, and the Jen­nie T. Ander­son The­ater at the Cobb Civic Cen­ter.
  • Serve the com­mu­ni­ty with “Broad­way on Wheels”… a trav­el­ing reper­to­ry show com­ing to local Nurs­ing Homes & Children’s Hos­pi­tals in 2018.

The Inau­gur­al Fall 2017 sea­son will include a Broad­way-style review with high ener­gy pro­duc­tion num­bers from shows like “Thir­teen, the Musi­cal”, “Bring it On”, and “Hair­spray”.
