The Jr. Workshops offers a junior version of a musical where every child gets a singing or acting part. The workshops are divided into two age groups, the Spotlight Group grades 3-6 and the Lollipops grades K-3. It is the perfect place to start for a child that loves to act, sing and dance or for those who are more on the shy side and need encouragement to speak in public. LYT has never been about the “star system”. Our program is designed as an educational tool that helps kids build self-confidence trough expression to build not just theatre skills, but life skills as well. Students learn in a creative and safe environment from the finest instructors in the area and they have a great time in the show!
