Lawrenceburg Academy of Performing Arts, Inc. is proud to present theater classes, camps and productions for children ages 7-17 in Anderson and surrounding counties! We were thrilled to present our first production, Best Christmas Pageant Ever, in December of 2018. Our first Children’s Theater musical production followed in 2019! Macy’s “Yes Virginia, the Musical” was a huge hit with the community and our first school performances for Elementary & Middle school students in Anderson County Schools! Due to Covid-19 our rotation back to the classic “Best Christmas Pageant Ever” was postponed to this year. We will continue to rotate this timeless classic into our production rotation every other year.
AUDITIONS COMING IN AUGUST 2021: Auditions will be held at Lawrenceburg Academy of Performing Arts, 106 College Street August 23 & 24th from 6:00-8:00 each night. Callbacks will be Announced at the conclusion of auditions and the date will be posted with the callback list. Those auditioning only need to come one night of auditions. Students will be asked to sing a simple melody and read from the script. Only students notified after auditions will be needed to return for Callbacks. Auditions are closed to parents. You will register your children, be given instructions and dismissed until 8:00 pm when you can return to pick up your child. Auditions are open to children in Grades 1-12. Boy and girl roles including children & adult characters as well as a singing “Angel Choir” will be cast. This show will cast 20 plus students.
