GLTG Summer Workshop Registration

Geauga Lyric Theater Guild will offer many opportunities for youth ages 4 through 18 during the 2014 summer workshops.

Junior workshops for youth ages 4-7 offer the chance to explore the stage with classic tales, “The Shoemaker and the “Elves” and “Thumbelina.” The elementary youth musical, “No Strings Attached,” and elementary drama, “Jungle Book,” workshops immerse kids 7-12 in the magic of theater.

Tweens, ages 11-14, will have the opportunity to be part of “The Neverending Story” and delve into a magical world told through a very curious book.

New this year is a change from a teen workshop to an auditioned teen production. Teens ages 13-18 will perform “Grease: School Version”

Registration opens in person April 5 at 8:30 a.m. at the Arts Center located at 106 Water St. across the street from the Geauga Theater. The line forms early and workshops fill quickly.

Other summer class offerings will be announced soon, for both youth and adults. For more information, visit or call 440-285-7701.
