About the program

Little League Players is open to students who have completed 2nd grade through completed 4th grade, who will be at least age 8 (or turning 8 by Sept. 1, 2022).  If younger than this, you can reach out to us directly about the possibility of inclusion.  We rehearse Monday-Thursday at Cambridge Middle School from 1:00-4:00. This program is designed to introduce students to theatre, help develop performing skills for returning students, and cultivate a foundation for being on stage that the students can carry into the middle school program.  We rely heavily on theatre games and play in this program, all the while rehearsing a short youth musical.  

This year the Little League Players will be revisiting a favorite, Bebop with AesopThe master of fables, Aesop, gets a jazzy send up of many classic tales like the Ant and the Grasshopper, the Tortoise and the Hare, among others. This fresh and fun adaptation includes five fables told through both skit and song.  All participants will have the opportunity for speaking parts and features, as well as being an important part of the group chorus.  There are no formal auditions in this group, but parts are determined by student interest and confidence shown in the early days of the program. 

Performance/Share Day

The students in Little League Players will showcase their hard work at our performance on the final day of the program, June 30th.  Participants arrive at the regular 1pm time to do a final dress rehearsal, followed by some games and activities to get their nervous jitters out!   We welcome family and friends to watch the performance at 3pm in the Cafetorium at Cambridge Middle School.  There is no cost to attend, but we gladly accept free will donations.  After the Little League Player portion of the event, the audience will get a “sneak peek” at the work being done for both of the other programs the older students are working on, with a staged number from Frozen, Jr. and Crazy for You each being shared.  The performance concludes with the Little League Players returning to the stage one final time to close their season with the song “I Sing the Body Electric.”  This song is one that concludes ALL Summer Youth Theatre productions.  

Registration closes on May 6th or when the program is full.
