It’s a Busy Month for Lexington Children’s Theatre

It will be a busy month at Lexington Children’s Theatre, with the productions of two different plays, “Where the Red Fern Grows” and “Zombie in Love,” plus auditions for “Junie B. in Jingle Bells Batman Smells” which will take the stage in November.


where-the-red-fern-grows “Where the Red Fern Grows” is the heartwarming play that follows Billy Coleman and his two best friends, who just so happen to be dogs, Old Dan and Little Ann.

Performances are Sunday, Oct. 11 at 2 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 17 at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 for children under 18, and $18 for adults.



zombie-in-loveInterested in zombies? LCT will perform a new musical, “Zombie in Love,” which runs Friday, Oct. 30- Sunday, Nov. 1 on LCT’s Learning Stage.

The musical is centered on Mortimer, who isn’t your everyday teenager. Yes, he faces typical teen trials – balancing homework and friends, trying to fit in, figuring out how to talk to girls – but for the life of him he just can’t find a date to the school dance.

It doesn’t help that his bones are decaying, and that he eats brains for breakfast and he’s… well, dead.

Can the zombie get the girl? Find out in this new musical that proves love isn’t only for the living.

Tickets are $12. Showtimes are 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 30, and 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

junie-b-jonesAlso in October, auditions for “Junie B. in Jingle Bells Batman Smells” will take place at LCT on Saturday, Oct. 10, 1-3 p.m., and 4-6 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 11, 4-6 p.m., and Monday, Oct. 12, 7-9 p.m. Auditions are open for children ages 9 and up.

The show will hit the stage in late November. Performances are at the Lexington Opera House on Saturday, Nov. 28, 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 5, 2 & 7 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 6, 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 for children and $18 for adults.
