Geauga Lyric Theater Guild will conclude its summer youth programming with a Salute to America on July 19th & 20th at 7:30 p.m. at the Geauga Theater. The youth cast, ages 7- 13 years old, participated in the mini musical workshop program that included a field trip to Lawnfield, the home of President James A. Garfield, weekly sessions on basic theater skills and show related art projects. The play centers on Uncle Sam’s efforts to organize the iconic American symbols into a parade to celebrate America. Witty dialogue, clever lyrics and catchy tunes including sing-alongs of popular patriotic songs will entertain and educate the audience.
These performances are open to the public and are dedicated to veterans and military personal and their families. City workers were also invited to attend as they serve our community as well.
“The kids and I really wanted to create a unique show filled with appreciation for our country, to pay our respects to not only soldiers and veterans but to others who make our community safe and strong.” commented instructor and director Julie Douglass.
Light refreshments will be served after the shows. Admission is free but donations are greatly appreciated and used to continue GLTG educational programs. Geauga Lyric Theater is located at 101 Water Street on the beautiful Chardon Square. For more information, see our website at Geauga Theater.
