A latte (the drink) is a strong coffee topped with frothed steamed milk. How apt that our acronym describes the troupe so perfectly! LATTE Theater, the La Grange Area Teen Theater Ensemble, boasts a strong team of teens who have frothy fun at every rehearsal and who aim to bring that fun out to the audience at every show.
We at LATTE are completely invested in our team. For us the process of putting on a show is just that – a process. The teens work hard together, play hard together, and grow together as they reach and attain their goal of performing of semi-professional productions for the community.
Though we are a local group, teens travel in from Indiana, Wisconsin, and more to be part of the program. Many of our teens go on to incredible heights in the arts, and otherwise.
Troupe members with experience within LATTE help guide each other with their strengths through an age blind focus. We use strong collaborative leadership to help each other grow, and empower each other. Some LATTE alumni have even continued on after high school graduation as college interns, and we are happy to draw from a number of talented resources.
