Litefooter Youth Workshop & Production

Our young performers at the Plaza are nicknamed the Litefooters because our adults are called the Footeliters in honor of Pulitzer- and Academy Award-winning playwright Horton Foote, who was born in Wharton. Every summer we teach basic stagecraft and theatre discipline at the Litefooter Summer Youth Workshop. The workshop culminates in a major production on the Plaza’s main stage during the last weekend in June.
Auditions: Auditions are held in early May and the number of participants will be limited for the program. For those that receive a part and are accepted into the program, a registration fee of $75.00 covers t-shirt, snacks and supplies. Scholarships are available upon special request.

Special Note: Youth that participate in the Litefooter Summer Youth Workshop & Production will not be allowed to audition for other summer productions because of conflicting rehearsal schedules.
