Acting Training, Placement Auditions  – LATTE Theater

Auditions start Saturday, September 7th, following the workshop, and by appointment. The teen cast performs a full-length show open for our supportive community, family and friends. LATTE challenges veteran performers while giving a strong and fun primer to those who want to explore theater as a new avenue.

LATTE bases each individual choice of a show on what highlights the strength, chemistry and cast member’s talent through auditions. Our mission is to encourage teens’ growth on and off the stage. Fun and focus go hand-in-hand in a collaborative leadership model.

Tweens-Teens must be available to participate in all performances and heck week.

  • Minimal Vacations/Commitments can be worked around as long as they are not in “Heck week”. All cast members are required to attend mandatory heck week rehearsals and be available the entire days for the weekend of the show. As much as we might want to make exceptions for this time period, it is imperative for the sake of cast integrity that we honor this, according to the Actor’s Code. This is a fun, yet intensive program and we want everyone to succeed!

MASH logo

MASH

This is a wild, free-flowing comedy, M*A*S*H stands for Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and joining it are two unpredictable madcaps, Hawkeye and Duke. They can’t be dealt with casually, however, because they are also two of the best chest surgeons in South Korea. They decide to wage a campaign to get a young Korean to the United States and entered in a good school. The thread of this effort helps tie together the pileup of comic adventures that pyramid right before the eyes of your astonished and hysterical audience! Hawkeye has a scene with a woman psychiatrist who believes he’s been trying to lobster-trap mermaids in a rice paddy! There’s a jolly encounter with the baby-talking Bonwit sisters, the worst tap-dancing act the U.S.O. ever sent overseas. A sergeant is selling dumb GIs fishing rights in the Bay of Phum. Radar O’Reilly, a soldier with incredible hearing, anticipates things before they happen. The proprietor of a painless dental clinic is cured of dark moods by the recreation of an old monster movie—and a monster! It’s all here, including a little romance mixed in with dramatic moments and a genuine love of life. Oh, yes—the Korean boy does get his education in the United States!

FALL 2020 POTENTIALS

spoon river anthology

Spoon River Anthology

Based on the Book by Edgar Lee Masters, A Newly Adapted Stage version by Felicia Pfluger

This once-banned book, brought to the stage, takes place in Illinois in 1915. Ghosts rise from their graves to come alive on stage. The veneer is stripped away from polite society to show the darker side of small-town living as well as the courage and strength of the deceased residents of Oak Hill Cemetery. Freed from the epitaphs on their tombstones, this one evening, they confide their secret truths with us. The honest, kind, hardworking and chaste live in conflict with those who aren’t… The corrupt deviants, the abusers, the unfulfilled…  and those with unrequited dreams and hopes.

Freed from the shackles of life, these restless souls confess their deepest secrets and frustrations, confront their attackers, vent their frustrations, celebrate their joys, and warn the living.

Dracula

DRACULA

Bram Stoker’s Gothic Thriller beckons from the shadows to the stage, crackling with unsettling intensity. From the mind of Chicago playwright Felicia Pfluger, this age, old horror springs alive as a new, delightfully visceral adaptation.
