The Baytown Little Theater was recognized recently by the Baytown Junior Forum with a donation from the proceeds of their fund-raising and community support efforts. Presenting the check on behalf of the Junior Forum is Jeannette West, Vice President (left). The BLT was represented at the award presentation by theater manager Kathryn Saenger, center, and youth program director John Morales.
This donation will support the youth programs of the BLT, including their recent performance at the Youth Conference of Texas Nonprofit Theatres in Lewisville, Texas. This was the 13th year that the BLTeens have participated in this statewide youth theatre gathering. Groups from community and youth theatre groups across Texas met June 6 through 10 at the Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theatre to enjoy workshop class sessions taught by professionals and performances by the participating companies. The BLTeens, under the direction of Morales, performed the musical Starmites Lite.
Youth summer camps continue next week. See the post below regarding the session beginning next Monday, June 18, for grades 7 through 12.
