BACKSTORY YOUTH THEATRE PRODUCTIONS
We are thrilled to announce auditions for our summer youth theatre production, Mankind & Co.! We thought we'd be producing this fun show in 2020 but, alas, our plans were put on hold. In 2021, this show provides wonderful opportunities to accommodate a split cast for physical distancing with in-studio rehearsals and a combined performance that we intend to record at the Broomfield Auditorium with limited live seating (as allowed by current COVID requirements at the time). Performances are currently scheduled July 9th and 10th. Rehearsals will be at BackStory's studio Tuesdays & Thursdays between 4 and 8pm, not all students will be called to all rehearsals or for the full time. Auditions will be in-person at the Broomfield Auditorium May 3rd and 4th from 4:30-7:30pm. Auditioners will stay masked until they are on stage. Please email us to request a virtual audition. Auditions are by appointment only and a fully refundable $50 deposit is required to sign up.

This exceptional new musical was written and composed by Preston Adams with additional composing and musical support from Kelly Bidstrup-Graham. Our creative team is comprised of strong women who are either LGBTQ or allies and who have lived experience with trauma and suicide. "There Will Be Light" is about a black teen, named Max, who falls in love with Ethan, a boy at their small-town high school, and the subsequent events that threaten to tear them and their community apart. For our families with younger children, please note, this is a modern, belting show with dramatic approach, strong language, and challenging topics including religion, LGBTQIA+, race, and suicide which will not be appropriate for our students under age 13.
