NBYT’s summer production for ages 7 through 14 will be The Lion King JR! (Disney Theatricals limits participants to age 14, but teens ages 15 through 18 may apply to be production assistants.)

Rehearsals will be held over a four-week half-day program (Mondays through Fridays) with a weekend of performances at the end of the program. All children who register will be cast in the show. Roles will be determined based on pre-program auditions to be scheduled in June. Over the course of the program, the cast will rehearse the performance—including music and choreography—and will also help to make some of the props and costumes to be used in the show.

Hours: 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Performance Dates: July 28, 29 & 30
