LATTE, in its 8th year in LaGrange, has had a blast serving a very specific niche in the community. This Montessori meets Socratic meets mentoring theater program empowers teens to explore their talents in new and unique ways. The mission of this nonprofit is to educate teens in the combined mediums of theater arts and leadership development.
Members of the teen ensemble can explore diverse theater areas. Teens, in the past, have: directed, assistant directed, choreographed, done costuming produced scripts that were used in encore performances, done set design. They designed artwork for the posters, created props, and of course, acted up a storm! Whatever the opportunity, the focus is on mentoring, education, and empowerment.
