Jayne Gottlieb Productions, Inc was founded in 2005 with the goal of bringing young professional theatre to the Roaring Fork Valley. The Company produces 5-6 high quality young people’s theatre productions each year. Past Productions have included Peter Pan, Singin In The Rain, Bye Bye Birdie, A Chorus Line, Fame, Les Miserables, Oliver, Evita, Sound of Music, Guys & Dolls, White Christmas, Seussical and Hair. As part of the cast, children not only get lots of stage time and opportunity to shine, but even more importantly they come away with a very rich experience full of life lessons of leadership, confidence, teamwork and commitment, as well a wonderful new set of friends from all over the valley. Participation will require hard work and focus, however lots of fun and laughter are an integral part of the program as well!!
