June 21, 2019
NAPLES, Fla. (June 20, 2019) – Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples’ premier professional regional theater, will shine a spotlight on talented teens during the Teen Conservatory production of “Les Misérables.” Tickets are available for performances taking place on Aug. 1-4 and 6-10 at 7 p.m. and Aug. 2, 4, and 9 at 2 p.m.
Directed by Broadway veteran Becky Timms of the original Broadway production of “Cats” and previous associate choreographer for the Tony Award–winning “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” the classic Broadway musical will star students ages 13 to 18 from Gulfshore Playhouse’s by-audition only Teen Conservatory. A pre-professional theater program for teens with a serious interest in theatrical performance, the Teen Conservatory intensive provides high-level training in acting, singing, ensemble work, and auditioning.
“The most exciting part of the Teen Conservatory program is watching the students transform from nervous teenagers into young pre-professional artists who conduct themselves with grace and confidence,” said Gulfshore Playhouse Founder and Producing Artistic Director Kristen Coury. “The program is incredibly demanding and instills in our students a sense of accomplishment and confidence, as well as a new understanding of teamwork and the importance of lifting each other up.”
Open to the public, performances will take place at The Norris Center located at 755 8th Ave. S., Naples, FL 34102. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the front desk or by calling 239-213-3058.
