Apprentice Opportunities for Two Sayre Students at The Lexington Theatre Company
Posted 05/23/2019 11:39AM
Sadie Barlow '22 and Lauren Carter '19 are working with The Lexington Theatre Company this summer with their Apprentice Program.
Former Sayre alum, Lyndy Franklin Smith '97 is the Artistic Director and co-founder of The Lexington Theatre Company. Lyndy alongside her husband Jeromy wanted to find a way to give back to her hometown and to the musical theatre industry. Bringing in students is part of that giving back.
Lauren will be joining the team as a high school performing apprentice in West Side Story and Sadie will be a high school technical apprentice for Disney's Newsies. They both performed in last season's The Music Man. As high school apprentices, they have the unique opportunity to learn, grow and hone their craft alongside Broadway veterans, seasoned professionals and top-notch college students from around the country. Thanks to The Lexington Theatre Company who have been able to offer these incredible opportunities to Sayre students and other Central Kentucky youth!
