• From the kids’ perspective: The involvement of kids at TTD

    By Olin Inscore Essick

    The Theatre Downstream (TTD) brings lots of people together, old and young. Most people might think of TTD as adult actors or directors, but kids contribute to TTD in lots of ways.

    Often, children are on-stage acting. For example, in “Annie” and “The Wizard of Oz,” children were the main characters.

    Children are usually handing out playbills and showing guests to their seats. At the last performance of “He Needed Killin’,” a kid my age showed me and my family to our seats.
