Jake Latts will tell you he doesn’t remember his first experience of theater at age two, but his mother Kate Latts certainly does. It was the stage show of Barney the Dinosaur. As she recalls, it left him transfixed, immobile and thoroughly immersed. He himself, though, will point to another more authentic toe dip into theatrics at the age of six – a trip with his mom to New York City. It was there that he saw “The Sound of Music,” with dollops of dancing, singing and live music to boot. A Broadway show – the real thing. And he’s been performing ever since.
“I wanted to raise money for Acting Out so that other kids could be introduced to the arts and have the same wonderful experiences with theater I have had.”
