Nearly 200 Local Student Actors Take the Stage with TYT
Triboro Youth Theatre Invites Community to Attend Family-friendly Performances
Attleboro, Mass – Triboro Youth Theatre (TYT) is pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for its Winter Season productions. TYT is putting on three different family-friendly shows with nearly 160 local-area student actors combined.
The productions are directed by Eric Langmeyer of Weymouth and Patrick McCrossan of Foxboro. Mr. Langmeyer helmed the TYT production of “Frozen, Jr.” this past July, and Mr. McCrossan co-directs at Qualters Middle School in Mansfield. The actors have been working since the beginning of September learning lines, mastering choreography and exploring the importance of comedic timing when delivering a joke.
“It is wonderful to see the transformation that happens in the acting ensemble from when we’re starting out through the performances,” said Dave Renoni, Executive Director of Triboro Youth Theatre. “Over the course of eight weeks these actors learn a lot more than just lines. They’re working together as a cast to tell their stories, and that takes time, dedication and determination on the part of everyone.”
Tickets can be purchased at www.triboroyouththeatre.org and all performances are held at Thacher Elementary School in Attleboro, MA.
