Framingham Youth Theater Company Staging Disney’s Cinderella Kids on July 26

FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Youth Theater Company, organized through the Community Resource Development and Fine and Performing Arts Departments of Framingham Public Schools, is currently preparing for a special culminating performance. 

Framingham Youth Theater Company will be presenting Disney’s Cinderella Kids on July 26 at 7 p.m. at Framingham High’s air-conditioned theater.

Students entering grades 1-9 have been taking classes, auditioning and rehearsing for their final performance as a part of a 4-week summer theater program that ran for the first time last year. 

Students from across all nine of Framingham’s elementary schools join students from Cameron Middle School daily to learn more about acting, dancing, singing, stagecrafts and working together as an ensemble to create their production. 

“Framingham Youth Theater has almost doubled enrollment in one year,” said Teri Shea, Coordinator of Framingham Youth Theater and the Drama Teacher at Cameron Middle School.

“Our students take workshops in music, dance and theater arts in the mornings and then rehearse for Disney’s Cinderella Kids in the afternoons. The staff love teaching together in the summer and the students are having a great time learning new skills and preparing for their final performance,” said Shea.

“When asked about her experience, Ella Bachman said, “I love Framingham Youth Theater. I love that everyday we are doing something new and people are nice and have a great attitude working on the show.” Ella is a second year participant who plays one of the Narrators in Disney’s Cinderella Kids.

Tickets for the July 26 performance are $5 and will be available at the theater starting at 6:30 p.m.
