Originally based in Yonkers, NY, now based in Orlando, FL; Little Radical Theatrics, Inc. (LRT) a non-profit 501(c)3 community theater was originally founded in 2009 as an outlet for stage performers in the tri-state area. Staring as a small theater company for college students, it has since evolved into a recognized non-profit independent theater company for high-caliber performers of all ages producing polished, high-quality community theater.
In August 2009, LRT brought its inagural production, a (sold-out) tenth anniversay staging of URINETOWN, to the Schoolhouse Theater in Croton Falls, NY. Since its inception LRT transitioned from producing solely summer productions to two/three show seasons beginning in 2011.
Since 2011, LRT has produced 24 full-scale musicals, running the gamut from off-Broadway cult classics like "Reefer Madness" to classical musicals such as "Carousel". LRT has produced four Westchester Regional Premieres: Reefer Madness Smile , Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party , and The Addams Family ; and the NY Regional Premiere of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.
LRT's 2016 season was nominated for thirty-one Broadwayworld Westchester/Rockland Awards winning "Best Leading Actor in a Musical" for RENT, and LRT's 2017 season was nominated for thirty Broadwayworld Westchester/Rockland Awards winning "Best Lighting Design" for "The Secret Garden.
LRT is also a seven-time recipient of an ArtsAlive Award Grant from ArtsWestchester, Westchester County's Arts Council.
LRT's 2019 season, the company's tenth anniversary featured one of the first local productions of Mamma Mia! which played to sold out houses! We followed up with our second-ever teen musical "Fame'. Last was the classic musical Brigadoon, which swept the Broadwayworld Westchester/Rockland Regional Awards. In January of 2020, we presented the Westchester Premiere of Matilda the Musical.
In the summer of 2020, Little Radical Theatrics moved from Yonkers, New York to Orlando, Florida. Our first planned season in Orlando will begin in January of 2021 with "Into the Woods", followed by "Disney's The Hunchabck of Notre Dame" in April of 2021 and "The Sound of Music" in July of 2021 all at the Marshall Ellis Performing Arts Center!
Though we have moved from New York to Florida, our mission continues: producing high quality musicals that appeal to audiences and actors of all ages and to continue to bring joy and love for the performing arts to all who come see our productions!
Little Radical Theatrics (Fatima Viegas, Executive Producer) is thrilled to announce the cast for our very first production in Orlando,

OUR COVID19 SAFETY PLAN
As we begin our first season in Orlando, safety is a huge priority for us. We wish to create a safe environment where performers can have a place to safely perform, and audiences can enjoy live theater even while living in this challenging time.
Though our performances for "Into the Woods" will not be for a few months, we are planning as if COVID will still be a part of our lives.
We are implementing the CDC's guidelines and developed our plan with input from an infectious disease specialist at a major hospital. We believe we have a plan that will keep everyone from performers, to our creative and production teams, to of course our audiences, safe while producing quality live theater here in Orlando.
For the safety of all involved, masks and temperature checks will be required for anyone entering the theater. MASKS MUST BE KEPT ON AT ALL TIMES WHILE INSIDE THE BUILDING. This will be strictly enforced!
Performers will perform in masks, stage crew and front of house crew will be wearing masks and audience members will be REQUIRED to wear masks for the duration of the peformance and will not be allowed into the building without one. No food or drink will be allowed inside the building.
If an audience member removes their mask they AND THEIR PARTY will be immediately asked to leave the performance without a refund.
Tickets will be contactless and Show Programs will be digital. All audience members will be given a specific time to enter the theater to promote social distancing and to avoid gathering in a large group while waiting to enter. At the end of the performance, Ushers will also help usher audience members out of the theater by row. There will be sanitizing stations inside the theater and we will require that all audience members sanitize their hands before entering the theater and lobby. All frequently touched surfaces will be constantly cleaned. Our theater has non fixed seating making it easy to ensure a safe distance between parties. No gatherings in the lobby post-production will be allowed.
Rehearsals for Into the Woods will take place at Quest Church 1450 Citrus Oaks Ave Gotha, FL . Into the Woods will be staged with social distancing in mind for all scenes. All performers, creative team members, production team members, and anyone at rehearsal must wear a mask at ALL times (no exceptions!) and maintain social distancing. We will also be rehearsing outside as much as possible in the ample grounds of our rehearsal space and our indoor space is a large gymnasium where it will be easy to maintain social distancing. Temperature checks will be mandatory before each reahearsal and anyone who is not feeling well will be asked to stay home until they seek medical attention and follow the doctors' recommendation. We will constantly be cleaning any surfaces that are touched. We will have hand sanitizer available and will ask that everyone washes thier hands for 20 seconds or uses the hand sanitizer before entering the building and will have breaks implemented for handwashing . So that we minimize the amount of people involved in the production, productions will use tracks until further notice.
