  2-3 male adults ages 20-60, 2 female adults ages 20-60
     This show will be taken to and performed at school locations during school hours and performed
for students in a class or many classes at a time. This is a continuing role/responsibility, as we will work throughout the entire school year as shows are booked. We need people who can be available for shows with a two-week notice. Most schools recognize this program as an educational service to the school community, and students/ cast members can be excused for the absent time of the day that shows are performed. Individuals will need to check with their schools for details.
     Adults who are cast will be asked to assist the director with transportation of cast members from our Youth Theatre to the school location.   Cast members are responsible for transportation to the Youth Theatre and to be picked up after performances.
“Orphan Train” is a play that tells the story of 9 orphans on a train that left New York City on
 May 28th, 1914, and traveled to U.S. Midwestern towns in search for homes for the children. This play is an excellent supplement to classroom American History courses.
  * We are very proud that “Spotlight on Youth” is our oldest educational outreach program, being in existence since 1989! This interactive drama has proven to be a most effective teaching tool, eliciting emotional responses that are vivid and lasting!
