CRESCENT CITY LIGHTS YOUTH THEATER PRESENTS 20th Anniversary Season
New Orleans' youth to take the stage this summer

New Orleans, LA (June 6, 2013) - Crescent City Lights Youth Theater in partnership with NORDC is proud to present its 20th season of summer musicals performed by all-children casts. The 2013 season features two productions - A Pocketful of Rhymes and the New Orleans premiere of the off-Broadway hit, Children's Letters to God.  

Formed in 1993, Crescent City Lights Youth Theater has instilled a love of performing in 1000's of children through over 40 productions. This season's productions feature 35 children across the Greater New Orleans Area. Kim Barnard, choreographer for Disney's hit kid's TV show "The Imagination Movers," will serve as director and choreographer for both productions.  

"Crescent City Lights Youth Theatre was founded on the belief that every child should have a creative outlet," said Julie Condy, Executive Director /Founder of the Crescent City Lights Youth Theater. "Immersing your child in theater at a young age teaches them more than performance skills. The experience prepares today's youth by equipping them with the creative skills like communication, working as a team and flexibility that are needed to excel in today's job market.  Plus the kids have a fun-filled summer to remember for the rest of their lives."

The complete 2013 Crescent City Lights Summer season is as follows:

A Pocketful of Rhymes (Friday, July 12 - Sunday, July 21) - A Pocketful of Rhymes is the Broadway hit musical from the 80's starring the world's first Lady of Rhyme - Mother Goose. Through rhyme and verse, Mother Goose unifies the human tradition, providing every family with a legacy to pass on for generations to come. The show brings classic nursery rhymes to life from the Little Boy Blue to the Cat and the Fiddle to a high stepping hoe-down Yankee Doodle Dandy. All performances feature a live 4-piece band of New Orleans professional musicians including Jesse Reeks, David Pulphus and Curtis Pierre.  Performance times:  Fridays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m.

Children's Letters to God (Friday, August 16 - Sunday, August 25) - In its New Orleans premiere production, the acclaimed off-Broadway musical, Children's Letters to God, based on the international best-selling book by Stuart Hample and Eric Marshall, follows the lives of five young friends as they voice beliefs, desires, questions and doubts common to all people but most disarmingly expressed by children exploring timeless issues such as sibling rivalry, divorce, holidays, loss of a beloved pet, the trials of being unathletic and first love. This show carries a universal message, which crosses the boundaries of age, geography, and religion. Performance Times: Fridays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m.

All Crescent City Lights Youth Theater performances are held at the NORD Ty Tracy Theatre on the 1st Floor of Gallier Hall, 545 St. Charles Ave. The theater entrance is on Lafayette Street.
