‘IF THEY SING IT, YOU WILL COME'
7:30 p.m., the Rep. $15.
Don't make the mistake of dismissing the Rep's
latest performance by its Young Artists program as just another kids show. Because chances are, when you think of children's theater, you imagine school plays that are redeemed only by cuteness. And the Rep's Young Artist productions are worlds beyond simple cuteness. The program, an intensive summer workshop where more than 60 actors, ranging from ages 10 to 22, hone their craft and prepare a musical, molds young performers into unbelievable talents. This year, they offer a revue of songs of the cinema that stretches from “Casablanca” to “Napoleon Dynamite.” Heed the call of the title (it's the last weekend). Also, see our review of the musical (page 35) and our video feature on the production in our video player above.
