Creative Stage Lighting is helping students in Lake George, New York get their Broadway on. Each summer, kids ranging in age from 11 to 18 rehearse and perform three shows through the Youtheatre program. This summer the ensemble will be performing Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Oklahoma. They not only perform but also participate in all aspects of production including lighting, sound, stage management, scenic design, and directing.

“For the past six years, Creative Stage Lighting has made it possible for Youtheatre to continue to bring the arts to hundreds of extremely talented area youth,” remarked Youtheatre director Mickey Luce. “Their financial support has enabled us to produce full-scale current Broadway productions that would not be possible otherwise. As a company that ‘lights’ the stages of great productions across the country, their magnanimous support has enlightened the lives of many appreciative young performers.”

Creative Stage Lighting has been the corporate sponsor for Youtheatre since the 2001 season. Youtheatre was established in 1978.

“Creative Stage Lighting is proud to be a part of such a valuable experience in the lives of so many of today’s youths,” says Creative Stage Lighting’s CEO George Studnicky III. “Youtheatre has immense value and causes young people to develop into truly productive adults.”
