CenterStage branches out to new theater audiences

Two new theatre productions will take CenterStage to the youth of Louisville. One will bring them to the show, another will put them in it!

CenterStage Academy is looking for actors ages 8-17 to perform Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr. Young actors will work with theatre professionals, Frank Goodloe III and Jordan Price to mount a full-scale musical production complete with lights, sets and costumes. All participants are guaranteed a role when they become “A Part of Our World.”

Rehearsals begin Sunday, October 13 and performances start Thursday, April 10. Rehearsal will meet Sundays 1-3:30 p.m. and Thursdays 4:15-6:15 p.m. More information and registration information can be found at

CenterStage Acting Out, a professional touring children’s theatre, will hold a public performance of And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank on Sunday, October 13 at 12:30 p.m. at the JCC’s Linker Auditorium.

After the performance, Fred Gross, a local Holocaust survivor, will speak about his family’s experience fleeing Belgium as Nazi troops invaded.

The show will then tour around Louisville to elementary and middle schools and community centers to present this educational theater to students.

Tickets are only $7 for youth age 10 and under and $12 for adults. Visit to reserve tickets.
