What Is The LimeLights Youth Theatre Program?
The LimeLights focuses on the education, confidence, and creative growth of our youth through hands-on artistic experiences. Whether a child dreams of working as an actor, designer, director, artist, dancer, vocalist or stage manager, our program is designed to ignite their desired passions. Our classes are created to assist in the progression of our student’s communication, presentation, and teamwork skills, as well as their empathy and confidence. Our staff of coordinators, instructors, and volunteers loves the students and take pride in the work we do at Memorial Opera House. Our little village does all they can to nurture, educate, and assist in the progression of our students. We see the potential and growth in each one of our students, but there are so many more out there waiting to be a part of this program. With your help, we can make a difference.
Your Donation Will Make A Difference!
Our students are asking for your support. We have several goals we would like to achieve with your support.
Students come to our program from all walks of life and varying financial situations. The LimeLights tries to keep costs low for families. But still, we hear time and time again how many of our students “would” register but they “just can’t swing it at the moment.” We want to be able to sponsor 10 children in our 2019 Fall-Winter semester and walk into 2020 prepared to sponsor 20 children for the entire year.
Expand Our Summer Camps
What began in the summer of 2016 as a summer camp has expanded into full length productions each summer since. Each year the programs become bigger and better, with more staff, full detailed costumes, props, set pieces, and as many children as our stage can safely accommodate.
Enhance Our Programs
Although students are currently taught by educated and experienced instructors and directors, your support would allow educators from Chicago, New York, and the Texas Shakespeare Company to lead master classes. This rare opportunity for area students would greatly enhance our already thriving program.
Support Our Youth Choir
Our popular LimeLights Youth Choir is constantly expanding. This program offers unique performance opportunities and vocal performance training. It strives to instill the importance of teamwork. Vocalists rehearse three to four consecutive months at a time and are led by professional directors who are talented and educated. We would love for our choir and their uniforms to be free to all participants.
Provide Supplies & Equipment For Art Classes
The LimeLights program takes pride in having a diverse array of classes and qualified educators on staff to bring forth any and all elements of art. Your donation will assist in covering the cost of basic art supplies, numerous crafting necessities, as well as equipment and technology.
