The 11th annual Tens by Teens was held May 4, 5 and 6 in the SC PAC.  Tens By Teens is an opportunity for students to write, direct and act in plays.

“My goal was to give students an opportunity to have their original plays produced to a live audience,” director Lawrence Keller said.

Each play was practiced two or three days a week after school for about two hours; the cast rehearsed for six weeks leading up to the performances, Keller said.

“This year of Tens by Teens is very distinct from all other years in the breadth and variety of its shows,” assistant director Sarah Valeika ‘18 said. “This year, we had a beautiful balance of drama and comedy, tension and diversion and really moving moments.”

Valeika has been involved in LT theatre since her freshman year. She has performed in six plays and has been involved in stage crew for two plays, she said.

“[My favorite part is that] I get to offer opportunities to students who have never had something like this,” Keller said.

Each year Tens By Teens offers a new variety of actors, directors and writers all of which are LT students.

“I will absolutely be auditioning for more shows,” Valeika said. “Being onstage is what really energizes me, and I cannot imagine a greater joy than sharing it with wonderful people.”
