Arts for Teens 2019 Shows

INFO FOR 2019!

This years shows will be:

Session I      "42nd Street"
The ultimate show-biz musical, 42ND STREET is a celebration of Broadway, Times Square, and the people who make the magic of musical theatre. Aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer comes to the big city from Allentown PA, and soon lands her first big job in the ensemble of a glitzy new Broadway show. But just before opening night, the leading lady breaks her ankle. Will Peggy be able to step in and become a star? The score is chock-full of Broadway standards, including “Go Into Your Dance,” “We’re In the Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off to Buffalo” and “Forty-Second Street.”

Session II:    "James and the Giant Peach"
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.
When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions. James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements along the way.


Arts for Teens is excited about producing 2 more big, Broadway-style Musicals this summer. Both musicals have a terrific set of characters, GREAT music, and most importantly, they are UPBEAT, FUN SHOWS to produce, giving each young performer the opportunity to shine in all 3 areas of performance: singing, dancing, and acting!

AfT shows range from modified versions of well-known Broadway "hits" to completely original productions scripted by the Teens and their teachers. The Arts for Teens show always takes place on the final Thursday evening of a session. The students are invited to come back the next day for a pizza party, and viewing of the Arts for Youth Artsfest!
