Little Shop of Horrors 

Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman with Music by Alan Menken

Based on the film by Roger Corman and screenplay by Charles Griffith, this horrifically, hilarious rock musical is a classic. What happens when a young floral shop worker comes upon a “strange and interesting plant” that might just have a taste for human flesh?  Little Shop of Horrors is the opening production in Clark Youth Theatre’s 2018-2019 season. This production is double cast, check out the cast list here!

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

By: Barbara Robinson

The Herdmans never go to church. So how did they end up with the lead roles in the Christmas play?  Chance, intimidation, and maybe a little Christmas magic help bring the Herdmans, as well as the rest of the town, to a new understanding of the holiday season. Don’t miss this Clark Youth Theatre tradition, 39 years strong!

A Shakespeare comedy full of betrayal, fighting, love, and confusion. As You Like It is a show you don’t want to miss.

The Emperor’s New Clothes 

By: Martha Kemm Barrett

King Egbert has a problem- an obsession with clothes and not much else. With the monarch too preoccupied with his attire, the kingdom is without proper rule. Fortunately, two intelligent weavers come up with a plan that might just help the king with his problem- or does it? This musical, written by Oklahoma’s own Martha Kemm Barrett, is a charming and witty piece that’s sure to delight audiences of all ages.

***Information About Clark Youth Theatre’s Rating System***

Clark Youth Theatre serves students ages 8-18. The 2016-17 season will have expanded programming to suit the varying needs of our students as they age through our program. We have created the CYT Rating System in order to provide our parents, guardians and patrons with as much information as possible about the content of plays. Ultimately, opinions about the appropriateness of content is subjective and is likely to vary from person to person. 

The rating system is structured in two tiers: age ratings (A, T, OT) and content indicators (language, violence and themes). Age ratings indicate a maturity threshold below which some parents or guardians may find the content unsuitable.

Content indicators provide insight as to the material within the play that prompted a particular age rating. If the play contains language (L), violence (V), or themes (S) that a parent may deem unsuitable, the rating notes for each production will provide details.

AGE RATINGS

ALL AGES (A) = material has been deemed unlikely to be found inappropriate by any particular age group.

TEEN (T) = content within play may be considered inappropriate by some parents or guardians for children under the age of 13.

OLDER TEEN (OT) = contains material some parents or guardians may consider inappropriate for children under the age of 16.
