Actress Sarah Allen thanks Capitol Youth Theatre program

Sarah Allen credits her theatrical beginnings to performances on the Capitol stage

Sarah Allen took a moment before last week’s Civic Theatre screening of her recently released movie, The Husband, to reminisce with Geoff Burns and Aeja Goldsmith, and offer encouragement to Ecco Haake and Sam Gerlitz, Capitol Theatre Summer Youth Theatre hopefuls.

Allen credits her theatrical beginnings to performances on the Capitol stage, with Burns as her director in Summer Youth Theatre productions like Trixie True, Teen Detective and Joseph and the Amazing Technicoloured Dreamcoat, in which she shared the stage with Goldsmith.

Both Haake and Gerlitz appeared in last summer’s production of Sweeney Todd under Burns’ direction and look forward to working with him again in the 2014 Summer Youth Theatre production The Secret Garden.

Auditions for this summer’s youth theatre program will be held on Sunday, April 13. To book an audition time call 250-352-6363.
