Pantochino Teen Theatre is designed to give young actors, age 12 to 18, the opportunity to work with professionals in learning, rehearsing and performing a fully realized production, outside of the school or academic situation. Weekly Saturday rehearsals are fast-paced and intensive, giving young actors the experience of a professional rehearsal schedule. Past productions have included "Go-Go Beach," Urinetown," "Starmites," "Into the Woods Jr.," "Zombie Prom," “Xanadu Jr.” and “Godspell Jr.” Pantochino Teen Theatre begins rehearsal each year just after the holiday season. Pantochino's Summer Teen Theatre is a two-week program providing the same intensive, professional experience.
SUMMER TEEN THEATRE 2019 “CRY-BABY!”
Tickets On Sale Now!! AUGUST 9 - 11 ONLY!
Book by Thomas Meehan & Mark O’Donnell, Music & Lyrics by Adam Schlesinger & David Javerbaum. Based on the Universal Pictures film written and directed by John Waters
This jumping, jiving Tony nominee is a rebellious teen comedy event! Think “Grease,” but with an attitude! Based on the cult classic, 1990 John Waters film, Cry-Baby features a delightfully demented book from the writers of Hairspray and a rockabilly score from the co-founder of Fountains of Wayne and the executive producer of "The Daily Show."
It's 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism and Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He's a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and square rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. She turns her back on her squeaky clean boyfriend, Baldwin, to become a "drape" (a Baltimore juvenile delinquent) and Cry-Baby's moll. It's Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats.
