Actors bring theater to library

The Youngstown Playhouse Youth Theater brought their talents to several libraries in the Public Library of Mahoning County and Youngstown system.
Children performed “The Princess and the Pea” for the families that attended the library. The performers interacted with the audience members to give them the opportunity to be part of the performance. Some of the children in the audience were brought up to the stage to be featured for different parts of the play.
The actors have been practicing their performance for more than a month. They had to work together to make sure everyone had their lines memorized correctly, get costumes together and other behind-the-scene action.
At the end of the performance the cast members introduced themselves and hosted a question and answer session. The audience had the chance to ask the performers questions about practicing, costumes and any other topics about their experience.
People in the audience who attend the performances are those who enjoy watching theater and some are involved in theater themselves. Representatives from the Youngstown Playhouse were there for those who were interested in more information and classes at the Youngstown Playhouse.
