The Lovely Bones

Susie Salmon is just like any other young American girl. She wants to be beautiful, adores her charm bracelet and has a crush on a boy from school. There’s one big difference though – Susie is dead.
Now she can only observe while her family manage their grief. Susie is desperate to help them and there might be a way of reaching them…
Alice Sebold’s novel The Lovely Bones captured the hearts of readers throughout the world. Award-winning playwright Bryony Lavery has adapted it for this unforgettable play about life after loss.

Little Women  

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, this musical version of Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.

Little Women embodies the complete theatrical experience, guaranteeing a night filled with laughter, tears and a lifting of the spirit.  The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.

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

Clark Youth Theatre serves students ages 3-18. The 2019-20 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.
