Lyric First Stage is our summer program for young artists (ages 14-20), designed to create an environment where, with professional mentors, a company of enthusiastic teens can explore ideas through text, music and movement, and refine their confidence and artistry in a series of workshops and a repertory theatre production experience.
Program Director Peter A. Carey leads a group of professional theatre artists and educators to work with a company of young artists. At the end of five weeks, Lyric First Stage presents two plays in repertory at The Lyric Stage Company of Boston: a Shakespearean classic and a musical. We look to the professional theatre world for a model of what we expect from the participants, and what they learn to expect from themselves. All acting participants will be cast in both the musical and the Shakespeare productions - a great way for young actors to challenge themselves and learn new skills.
