June 1-4
Mary Poppins

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! It’s one of the all-time favorites. The story we all grew up knowing is a charmer with magical nanny Mary Poppins and the lovable Banks children.

It’ll feature beautiful settings and costumes, and those unforgettable songs that everyone just loves: "A Spoonful Of Sugar," "Feed The Birds," "Let's Go Fly A Kite" and, of course, the forever-loved-tongue-twister... "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!"

Our annual Kids' Camp is for student ages entering 1st grade in Fall 2023 up through 18 years of age. Registration begins in March, 2023 and we usually fill the camp and close registration in just a few weeks. Make sure you're on our LLT newsletter list to get the first notice of the registration period.

Camp runs for one week in the afternoons beginning May 25th, and then the show runs June 1st-4th.

All registered campers are definitely in the show, but auditions for the lead roles will be held by director, Lacy Cockrell, in April. Only registered campers can audition for those.

Drop us a line at if you have any questions.

Our auditions are usually very laid back and you don't really need to prepare anything. Just come on down and we'll have a simple form you fill in with contact info. Auditioning could be a very scary thing, but we try to keep it as easy-breezy as we can so that newcomers will come join in with us on our productions.

For play auditions, the show director will have everyone read some scenes, but you don't have to show up with any memorized piece to audition with.

For musical auditions, you can sing anything you'd like or we'll just teach everyone a short song to sing together. If you bring sheet music, we'll have an accompanist to play for you. You can prepare a song or just sing 'Happy Birthday' or the National Anthem or an old hymn or you can wait and learn a group song with everyone else.
