Youth Theatre features some very young little thespians

-A +A
Very seldom does a 5- or 6-year-old get a lead role in a theatre production. That is until now. Rocklin Youth Theatre Company has cast their next production with children ages 5 to 11. Makayla Middleton, 6, has previously performed in four RYTC productions as a “mini” and now has the role of Natasha (the bird) in “The Adventures of Peter and the Wolf.” A second show, “The Trial of Goldilocks,” will open on June 5 at the Twelve Bridges Theatre located at 855 Twelve Bridges, Ste. 155 in Lincoln, it shows at 7 p.m. Friday, June 5 and 12, and 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays June 6-12. “Peter and the Wolf” begins at 2 p.m. June 6, 7, 13 and 14. Ticket prices are $8 an advance or $10 at the door. For more information, call 632-7197 or visit
