About the program

Arts After Hours, Lynn's community theatre, is excited to expand our programming from successful mainstage productions for adults to youth outreach for Lynn students and youths from our surrounding communities. After a successful round of one-day workshops in Summer 2018, we are proudly offering a one-week half-day Summer Youth Theatre Intensive in July 2019 where youths ages 8-18 will come together to learn and grow as theatre artists, as well as create a stunning piece of theatre in our culminating Showcase.

The Summer 2019 Intensive will be entirely catered to the ages and experiences of the individual registrants. Guided by professional theatre educators Samantha Gambaccini and Brit Christopher, students will use playmaking to create a new work generated from creative writing, scenework, partner and group activities, and artistic exploration. Students will decide to pursue this week as an actor or a technical theatre designer/crew member, depending on their interests, with help and guidance from the directors. The theme will be loosely based on Secrets, tying in to the Season 9 mainstage productions. We welcome all interest students and teens, ages 8-18, of any skill or experience level to attend. We will help you gain confidence in yourself and your theatre skills while fostering a strong sense of community, team relationships, individuality, and both personal and collaborative artistry. All are welcome.

While our mainstage productions are still 18+, we hope that with the success of this program, our future Youth programming will include a Youth mainstage production with a cast and crew comprised of our students, overseen by our professional design and education teams. Thank you for support of Arts After Hours.


Program and Showcase Location:

Cost is $150.00 per child for the entire week & includes a t-shirt!

Dog Sees God , March 2019

Dog Sees God, March 2019


Book by John Weidman, Music by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Nathan Fogg DeSisto
Music Directed by Shawn Gelzleichter

June 14-23, 2019
Neal Rantoul Black Box Theater
Lynn Arts, 25 Exchange Street, Lynn


A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written.

Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical "revusical" that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman, bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.
