Wanna Play?!Get your tickets here!Saturday, June 20th at 1:00 p.m.

Looking for fresh family fun featuring some of New Orleans’ most talented children?  Well, don’t miss Wanna Play?!, the brilliant musical revue for pre-teens & teens about the pains, pleasures and insanities of early adolescence.  Wanna Play?! was conceived by Bryan Young with book by Linda Bergman, music by Jeff Rizzo and lyrics by Barry Dennen.

 This tuneful revue features imaginative songs reflecting the thoughts and feelings of children about friendship, family and just being a kid.   In “I’m Just an Ordinary Schoolgirl,” Jessica Bagneris spins a dream of a girl-next-door who in her “heart of hearts” wants to be a rock star.  A boy (Tucker Godbold) is wrapped up in his computer (Haley Evans) in the vaudeville number, “Computer.”  A young girl (Shayla Lange) dreams of life on the Broadway stage in “Choices.”   Big finales include the rousing gospel number, “Think for Yourself” (Sean-Michael Bruno) and “Say Yes,” with a razz-a-ma-tazz kick line. 

 Rounding out the cast of 19 talented young performers (ages 8 to 16) are Kennedi Harrell, Jadah Henry, Sammie Jackson, Ghita Johnson, Mary Kaitlyn Kimbrough, Johan Lowe, Olivia Mixon, Erica O'Neal, Jenna Pertuit, Dorian Richard, Taylor Sanders, Rachele Smith, Annie Taffaro and Stephanie Turner.

The NORD/CCLYT production staff includes Kevin Charpentier, director; Myisha Dunn, choreographer; Julie Condy, music/vocal director; Michael Dixon, scenic designer; Charlotte Lang, costumer; Mark Montalbano, lighting designer and features local jazz musicians, Alex Mercedes, David Pulphus, Paul Thibodaux and Curtis Pierre. 

 Wanna Plays runs runs from June 19  to June 28 on Fridays at 7:30 pm; Saturdays at 1:00 pm; Sundays at 3:00 pm with one Thursday show (June 25) at 7:30 pm.
