Performers aged 8-18, are invited to join BackStory Theatre for our annual full-length Broadway musical, "The Lightning Thief"! 

Auditions will be conducted as small group auditions August 21st 11:15am - 4:35pm with callbacks by invitation on August 22nd. 


It is strongly recommended that Students ages 8 - 12 take classes, prior to and/or concurrently with BackStory (or another arts organization), in order to be fully prepared for taking on a musical theater production of this size.

Students 13 - 18 are expected to be life long learners and should be taking classes, private lessons, and/or regularly taking technique classes or workshops with us in order to continue to grow as performers and bring their absolute best to the production. If cost is an issue for your family email to start a conversation about scholarship opportunities and other options.

What is Fantastic Family Theatre?

It's theater made BY kids... FOR kids!

These short shows (15-20 minutes in summer, 20-40 minutes during the school year) are designed to introduce young audiences to the joy of theatre and allow them to imagine themselves on stage! Student performers (ages 5-14) work in classes to produce these silly, fun shows! During the summer, students work together to adapt and create their scripts and are directed by teens in our Youth Leadership Program. During the school year, younger students develop their own scripts and older students work from professional scripts. No matter what show you see, it's sure to be a unique experience!

Concessions are available at each show. Doors open at 6pm.  Save time by purchasing online:  Select your show date at check out.

No purchase needed for kids under age 5.

All tickets are general seating and sold first-come, first-served. Masks and distancing may be required per city and state ordinances related to COVID at the time of each show.
