Lyric First Stage 2013:Twelfth Night Lucky Stiff
July 8, 2013 - Aug 11, 2013

Lyric First Stage 2013 presents Twelfth Night by Willam Shakespeare and Flaherty & Ahrens' musical Lucky Stiff.  Lyric First Stage 2013 marks the ninth summer of Lyric First Stage. Join us this summer for a unique, intensive five-week theatre education & performance experience. Lyric First Stage is our exciting summer program for enthusiastic young artists, aged 14-20, who want to develop their theatrical skills by collaborating with professional mentors in a professional environment. The First Stage Company takes part in a series of workshops culminating in a repertory theatre production experience, exploring ideas through text, music, and movement, while building confidence and refining artistry in a noncompetitive, team-building process.

Peter A. Carey, a professional director, actor, and educator, will lead a group of professional theatre artists and educations who work collaboratively with our company of young artists. The Lyric First Stage Program concludes with full productions of a Shakespeare classic and an American musical performed in repertory at The Lyric Stage Company of Boston. All participants will be cast in both performance.

Stage Management Team

If you'd rather work behind the scenes and learn how a play gets produced, this is the place! As a stage manager, work with a professional in the field to explore and expans your understanding of the backstage elements of a theatrical production. A good stage manager is an integral part of the artistic team, and this will be your opportunity to improve your skills and gain crucial experience. You will develop skills in organization and management, run rehearsals, oversee tech week activities, and call performances, and develop great leadership skills. All stage management applicants will be interviewed for admission to the program.
