Now seeking dedicated theatre students from all over the New Orleans area to help form Le Petit Theatre's very first Teen Council.
Le Petit Theatre aims to establish a teen council comprised of 10-20 dedicated students in grades 8-12 that will join together throughout the 2023-24 season to view and discuss Le Petit work, read plays, perform volunteer theatre service, and learn about all areas of the professional theatre-making process from industry pros. We seek students who love to see theatre, perform theatre, work backstage, or are simply curious about becoming more involved in the art. This council will act as a way for students to learn not only the performing side of theatre production, but all of the various roles, jobs, and responsibilities that go into creating professional theatre for a community. Council members will also have the option to shadow various adult artists throughout the season to learn about areas of work that interest them.
This season, the council will:
- Attend all final dress rehearsals of Le Petit season productions, including Let the Right One In; Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?; Beautiful: The Carol King Musical; Born with Teeth; and The Importance of Being Earnest
- Meet monthly for 2 hours on designated weeknights to discuss work, read plays, and learn about various aspects of the professional theatre world
- Members of the council will volunteer to make pre-show welcome speeches to LPT audiences at our shows
- Members will have the opportunity to shadow production team members, directors, and Le Petit staff members in various parts of the production process
