Welcome to LATTE Theater, the La Grange Area Teen Theater Ensemble, a dynamic theatrical company that has served the area teens 11 – 19 since 2009! LATTE Theater develops college to professional level theatricality, collaborative leadership, socio-emotional growth and empowerment, creativity, and critical thinking skills for life. We encourage well rounded, active community participation – all while having a blast making memories.
We are a close-knit troupe that inspires each other to fully realize our potential. The skills follow throughout your life – and the unforgettable memories and laughter will stay with you always…
Teen members learn: directing, assistant directing, stage management, scriptwriting, choreography, set design, prop master, warm-ups, public relations, and advertising. Whatever the opportunity, the focus is on education and empowerment. The Pfluger Empathy Movement Method helps shape strong acting skills and delivers incredible stage productions, all while protecting the teen psyche as they continue to grow and develop on and off the stage.
Also, Midwest Theater Professionals form connections with our teens while teaching in our acting workshops held twice a year for the aspiring actor, writer, and director that focuses on improvisation, stage combat physicality, projection, enunciation, stage chemistry, relationship development and much more.
College internships are available for application in the areas of public relations, graphic arts, videography, and project management.
If your teen is interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 708-655-0989.
