Spartanburg Little Theatre kicks off their 2022-23 season with a SOLD OUT run of The Addams Family!
Spartanburg Little Theatre kicked off their season this past weekend with their production of The Addams Family. Based on Charles Addams’ original macabre cartoons, The Addams Family finds the charmingly creepy clan facing a new nightmare when their daughter, Wednesday falls in love…with a nice young man from Ohio! Despite the young couple’s plea for things to just be normal for once, the dinner party hosted by Gomez and Morticia to meet the boy’s parents soon goes devilishly awry, testing the bonds of family, love, and unholy matrimony. The Addams Family plays through Sunday, September 25 at the Chapman Cultural Center.
Next up in Spartanburg Little Theatre’s 2022-23 season is Holmes and Watson, playing November 4-13. View showtimes and purchase tickets here.
Spartanburg Youth Theatre, Spartanburg Little Theatre’s for youth, by youth theatre for all ages, will kick off their season October 7-9 with Charlotte’s Web. View showtimes and purchase tickets here.
Founded in 1972, Mary Nicholson’s vision for the Spartanburg Youth Theatre was to create a theatre experience unlike any other children’s theatre in the Upstate area. She believed that children should not just experience theatre from the audience, but from a theatre artist’s perspective. Not only would the children perform in the shows, but all of the crew behind the scenes would be children too. A professional staff of adults would guide them along in the process, but the ultimate product would be accomplished by the kids. The Spartanburg Youth Theatre became one of the first of its kind to produce “for youth, by youth” entertainment.
Since its conception, The Spartanburg Youth Theatre has touched the lives of thousands of students from across the Upstate in its effort to teach young people about theatre. Alums of the Spartanburg Youth Theatre have gone on to pursue many different careers, but if you ask any of them they’ll likely tell you that the skills they learned at the Spartanburg Youth Theatre helped them in whatever field they pursued.
