Fall 2013 - Annie
Annie is a spunky Depression-era orphan determined to find her parents, who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of a New York City orphanage run by the cruel, embittered Miss Hannigan. In adventure after fun-filled adventure, Annie foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, befriends President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and finds a new family and home in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary Grace Farrell and a lovable mutt named Sandy.
Spring 2014 - Peter Pan
Peter Pan tells the story of a mischievous little boy who refuses to grow up. Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as leader of his gang, the Lost Boys. The show's adventures begin when Peter teaches Wendy and her brothers how to fly and invites them to come with him to Never-Never-Land.
Peter Pan first appeared on stage in the 1904 play "Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up". The play was derived from J.M. Barrie's 1902 book, "The Little White Bird". The characters were inspired by the children of Llewelyn Davies, with whom Barrie formed a close friendship. Since then Peter Pan has become an enduring favorite for both children and adults on stage, screen and in print.
MYART Showcase Troupe is a select troupe of young performers which functions as MYART's outreach program. The main goal of the outreach program is to enrich and broaden community awareness of the performing arts. Troupe members receive intense training in all three areas of dance, voice and acting, invaluable performance experience, and strong sense of community awareness, responsibility and ensemble.
What is MYART?
Musical Youth Artists Repertory Theatre (MYART) is a community-based, non-profit, educational organization that provides young people the opportunity to be active participants in the performing arts. MYART supplements education in the performing arts. Though historically underfunded, we believe this to be a vitally important part of any child's curriculum. Each year MYART presents three main-stage productions with casts of 160 to over 300 participants. Multiple leads and large ensemble casts allow all participants to shine.
A Message from our Artistic Director
Many of our performers have had no previous theatre training and may have thought themselves too shy to recite in class or lead a group. MYART uses creative dramatics and training in voice, dance and acting to help students discover their own power as individuals.
