About This Event

Ages 4-7, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Six public performances. Previous workshop experience is required.

Springfield Little Theatre Summer Institutes are intensive, all-inclusive theatrical training grounds for experienced young musical theatre performers resulting in six public performances on the historic Landers Theatre stage! They provide exciting opportunities for committed students to be a part of full-scale production. A demanding two-week process from beginning to end, a Springfield Little Theatre Summer Institute may best be described as “summer stock” for youth!

Any high school student with equivalent experience (high school theatre, etc.) is invited to enroll in a Summer Institute. For students 8th grade and under, previous Springfield Little Theatre involvement is required for participation (a class, workshop, troupe, or production) or the pre-requisite can be satisfied through previous enrollment in a 6-week education class, School’s Out Play-in-a-Day Workshop, Education Series production, Summer Stages workshop, or Friday Fun Day!


When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.

Performances Friday, August 4 and Saturday, August 5 at 10:30 AM, 12:30 PM, and 2:30 PM
