Theatre for Young Audiences



Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) plays a key role in Slidell Little Theatre’s mission statement “…to educate…” and was created to introduce and engage young audiences in live theatre. TYA is a branch of theatre arts that encompasses all forms of theatre that are attended by or created for younger audiences. SLT participates in the internationally recognized program. At SLT, it focuses on many different forms of theatre methods and expressions, explores a wide variety of themes and life lessons, provides an educational experience, and is entertainment-centered. It brings to life favorite story book characters.


 SLT has designed the program as a venue for elementary school field trips and as a family event. We provide two shows during the theatre season, one in the Fall and one in the Spring - usually featuring popular children’s characters and local playwrights. The shows are geared for elementary age children offering fun events like “Pajama Night” for the Saturday evening performance. Some of our past productions include How I Became a PirateThe Boxcar Children, Miss Nelson is Missing, and Cinderella Battistella, to name a few.
