After twenty-three years in Andover, Merrimack Junior Theatre has closed its doors; however Andover’s wonderful tradition of youth theater is not over, as three of the members of the former Merrimack Junior Theatre Advisory Board join with Andover Youth Services to create a new theater opportunity for the youth in the Merrimack Valley.
The newly formed AYS Theatre Works! will hold auditions in early September for their first production scheduled for the Fall of 2012. Rehearsals will be held in the evenings during September through November, 2012. The performance will be Nov 9th, 10th and 11th.
The initial program will be for actors in grades four through eight. In addition, internship opportunities will be available for students in grades nine through twelve who are interested in working in other aspects of theater arts or in support of the program.
