Tuck Everlasting Production Classes Begin on August 9.

Registration is now Open for Live Oak Conservatory’s Youth Théâtre Program

Live Oak’s Youth Theatre program is for students ages 8-18. Entitled the Acorn Theatre, our performance class meets to rehearse on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00- 6:00pm. The class runs in 8 to 12-week periods with 6 or 8 performances at the end of each term. The Acorn Theatre works together to produce and perform 2 shows each year as well as participate in Brooksville’s annual Tree Lighting.  

The Acorn Theatre production team consists of rotating Directors/Instructors who are assisted by a team of apprentices in the areas of Stage Manager, Assistant Director, costumes, choreography, lighting, sound, music and set design. Parent volunteers are always welcomed in these areas as well.

Acorn Theatre apprentices are chosen from regular performers of Live Oak who have “grown up” on our stage. They assume leadership roles in the production and mentor the students of the Youth Theatre.

Spring 2023 – Singin’ in the Rain Jr – Classes begin on January 9, 2023

The “Greatest Movie Musical of All Time” is faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green, from their original award-winning screenplay. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make this project a guaranteed fun time for performers and audience members alike.

Singin’ in the Rain Jr. has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline — the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes, things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.
