Youth theatre and children’s theatre represent great opportunities for community theatres to grow their audiences and train the next generation of players at the same time. This week, in the second of three episodes from Elkhart’s Daily Grind, the Geeks, along with guest panelist Rick Ellis, discuss some of the joys and pitfalls of youth and children’s theatre programs. On hand is theatre mom and fund-raising professional Kristin Schwerha-Scott and Penny Meyers, an Elkhart Civic Theatre member with long experience working with that troupe’s youth program.
Throw in great coffee from the Grind and you’ve got yourself a show!
