Youth Theatre kids feeling Groovy at Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre
July 30, 2010
The year is 1969. Three friends decide to throw a free Music, Beads and Flowers Celebration. A popular singing group, the Lemon Bugs, love the idea and donate their talent. In no time, crazily-painted busses start arriving at Crumb’s Apple Farm, the site of the festival. It’s song-filled, funky and “Groovy! A Musical Comedy Tribute to the 1960’s” performed this weekend by RMRT’s Youth Theatre Production. The spotlight hits Grand County’s 11-13 year old acting stars this weekend on Saturday, July 31 at 2 p.m. and twice on Sunday, Aug. 1, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.Returning for his second year as Youth Theatre director is Scott Haden. “Audiences will not believe the amount of talent and fun on stage this weekend,” he said.
