The Rep to Present First Young Artists Showcases this Summer

171Did you see our Elf or Mary Poppins cast sing some of their favorite showtunes during one of the two cabarets this past season?

Well, you’re in for a treat this summer!

This month, we are excited to have our annual Summer Musical Theatre Intensive (SMTI) program present its first Young Artists Showcase – a cabaret-style event – this summer.

The showcases will feature a variety of dance, vocal and performance pieces starring SMTI young artists. The Senior Showcase (ages 16 – 23) will take place on Monday, July 20 and the Junior Showcase (ages 13 – 15) will take place on Monday, July 27. Proceeds from each showcase will benefit The Rep’s Young Artist’s Scholarship Fund.

“During these showcases, audience members will have the privilege of hearing and seeing some of the most amazing young talent from across Arkansas,” said Nicole Capri, The Rep’s Resident Director and Director of Education. “I’ve witnessed these young artists in auditions over the last 10 years and I’m excited for audience members to experience what we look for when seeking new talent. I can’t wait to see what our inaugural showcase will bring to the stage this summer.”

Admission is $5 at the door and reservations are not required.

Performances will take place at 7 p.m. on The Rep’s MainStage, 601 Main St., Little Rock, with the Lobby and concessions opening at 6:15 p.m.
