Lyric’s Small Parts Players

An update from Pete . . .

Hello Actors and Families, Have you been missing the acting, the laughter, the learning and the fun Small Parts Players as much as I have?  While we all watch what happens with the pandemic this summer, I am making tentative plans to restart SPP when school begins in September.  Stay tuned for details as we make plans to implement the recommended safety policies; let’s get back to the “business” of theatre!  Returning actors and new alike, I am looking forward to seeing you all!  Give me a call at 218-780-1264 if you have questions.  Have a great summer, Pete  

Lyric’s Small Parts Players

Small Parts Players – Act I & Act II, began its first season of production in 2000 and has been going strong ever since!  This after-school program puts on 2 to 4 theatre productions per school year and is a great way for children to build skills in the performing arts. While given the opportunity to explore this creative form of expression, this program also helps children develop reading and speaking skills through performance.  Small Parts Players is offered to children in two age groups:

The Act I age group, 7 through 11 years of age, meet in the Lyric Annex, 516 Chestnut Street, Virginia, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., during the school year.

The Act II age group, 12 through 18 years of age, is currently on hiatus.

Double check the Lyric calendar for any new developments.  Registration is $75.00 per production.

For more information contact Pete Pellinen, Director:  218-780-1264.
