About Company Originals:
For the advanced performer and emerging theatre artist, KIDSTAGE Company Originals is a unique process and performance opportunity. Student performers and writers collaborate in a workshop process with professional writers, composers and lyricists to create original material, which then is shaped into a new musical which is brought to life on stage. The Company consists of experienced young actors, writers, composers and lyricists, interested in further developing skills in theatre performance and in creating their own original characters and stories. The Company Originals production is written by, for, and about teens, and it addresses some of the most important issues facing teens today. Past original teen works include: trust me., Hot Mess, Last Exit, In Your Eyes, A Perfect Fall, Save As, and The Last Shot.
