Creede Repertory Theatre’s Headwaters New Play Program

THE KID SHOW

The KID Show‘s mission is to provoke and empower the creative minds of local youth while placing them in a professional environment and encouraging them to play. Since 2003, a professional team of CRT actors, directors, playwrights, painters, designers, and stage managers mentor local kids (ages 10-18) through the process of creating a fully produced, original show. Kids participate in every aspect of the play-making experience; they design and assist in building costumes, scenery, and puppets while rehearsing the play they ultimately perform in CRT’s state-of-the-art Ruth Humphreys Brown Theatre. We are looking for family-friendly plays written for young actors, with a cast size of 10-16.
