Jean’s Teens is the community-based youth theatre company of Jean’s Playhouse that, like Playhouse Players, was started in 2012 with the opening of the Jean’s Playhouse facility. The company gives local youths the opportunity to participate in plays and musicals with their peers. The emphasis with Jean’s Teens is on education — youth of all ages are invited to audition, whether hoping to begin their career in theatre or looking for a fun social event with other talented locals.
Join us for auditions on January 30-31 6-8 pm for Jean’s Teens spring show, A Kidsummer Night’s Dream, playing March 31-April 2. In the woods outside of Athens, the realms of humans and fairies collide! This musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream explodes in a joyous celebration of Shakespeare’s classic comedy. Kidsummer is full of mischief and mayhem, misunderstandings and magic potion mix-ups, as kings and queens, humble workers, fairies, parents and kids all chase their dreams. This show is simply… MAGIC!

Give and Take, November 13-15, 2015
A collection of multicultural folktales from around the world, written into a play by a high school acting class from Rhode Island to show how various cultures respond to the concepts of generosity and greed. The stories, some quite humorous and others quite poignant, originate from Native America, Africa, England, Japan, Russia, Ireland, Italy and South America, using a variety of theatrical techniques including mime, Kabuki style and Greek chorus.
Just So Stories, March 20-22, 2015
Jean’s Teens and Lin-Wood Public School proudly present Rudyard Kipling’s fantastical tales, adapted by the writer of last year’s script for The Stinky Cheese Man! Learn How the Whale Got His Throat, How the Camel Got His Hump, How the Leopard Got His Spots, and How the Alphabet Was Made!
HONK! Jr., November 7-9, 2014
Honk! Jr. is the story of Ugly, an awkward duck whose gawky looks instantly incite prejudice from his family and neighbors. Separated from the farm and pursued by a hungry cat, Ugly must find his way home. Along his rollicking and harrowing journey, he not only discovers his true beauty and glorious destiny but also finds love and acceptance in all its forms.
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fair(L)y Stoopid Tales, March 21-23, 2014
Jean’s Teens and Lin-Wood Public School proudly present a rather more sarcastic take on some of our most beloved fairy tales. From Cinderumplestiltskin to Goldilocks and the Three Gerbils, 25 local youth skew these familiar fables into something a little bit stranger and a whole lot funnier!
Seussical, Jr., June 1-2, 2013
Dr. Seuss, everyone’s favorite childhood story teller, has most of his stories combined in this show for the whole family. Meet the Cat in the Hat, JoJo, Horton the Elephant, Mazie, and all your other favorite Seussian characters in this fabulous show. You will like it better than Green Eggs and Ham, but you can’t watch it there, you can only watch it here at Jean’s Playhouse!
