Footlight Players Theater-For-Youth begins its sixth summer enrichment program for young people in the greater Indiana community on Monday, June 15, 2009.

This year over forty children and teens will participate in workshops and will produce two plays based on the imaginative books by Roald Dahl—James and the Giant Peach and Willy Wonka (a musical). Enrollements are still being accepted and applications are available on the Footlight Players website.

Footlight Players is a service outreach of the Department of Theater and Dance and provides a nurturing environment in which children can explore and discover their creative talents in the performing arts. Each year, IUP alumni, faculty, and regional professional artists work together to create four weeks of programming at IUP’s Performing Arts Center.

Funded in part by the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts grants administered by the PA Rural Arts Alliance for the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
