HCT's SummerStage Pro production of Les Miserables -Students Edition was an incredible success. Six sold out performances were held before standing room only audiences. The production marks the inaugural season of SummerStage Pro, a free program for teens and young adults from all over NJ and NYC. Spanning across economic and cultural backgrounds, SummerStage Pro is the next step for all young performers who want to pursue a career in theater. Produced by the award winning Hoboken Children's Theater and directed by stars of the Broadway production, Lisa Capps, Don Brewer and Randy Glass, SummerStage Pro brought in Broadway actors, agents, casting directors and industry professionals to share their knowledge and expertise with the cast of 40 young adults, providing them with truly professional training. This production was a life changing experience for the performers.
Hoboken Children’s Theater, headed by Chase Leyner, has been a driving force in the artistic community in Hoboken for 10 years. As one of the resident theater companies at the Monroe Theatrespace at 720 Monroe Street in Hoboken, HCT produces more than a dozen productions each year with children ages 4 to 20.
Due to the success of Les Miserables, HCT will be able to offer SummerStage Pro again next summer.
