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 Yonkers, NY.


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 21 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.


Beginning as a roaming theater company, since 2014, thanks to the generosity of the city of Yonkers and the Yonkers Public Library system, LRT has been in residence at the Grinton Will Library on Central Ave in Yonkers.


     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. 


In addition LRT was nominated for Onstage Blog's 2016-2017 Regional Theater awards, with nominations for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical (Brett Popiel in Oliver!), Outstanding Leading Actor in a Musical (John Palacio in Oliver!), Outstanding Director (Michael Mirra for Oliver), and Outstanding Production of a Musical (Oliver).


LRT is also a six-time recipient of an ArtsAlive Award Grant from ArtsWestchester, Westchester County's Arts Council. 


    LRT's 2018 season was our biggest and most ambitious yet! "Shrek" opened our season this past January, breaking all previous LRT audience records and selling out performances at the Grinton Will Library. Next we presented our innagural all-teen musical "Runaways" and finished up our 2018 season   with  "Ragtime", which tied "Shrek" for our most successful show yet! Performers from "Ragtime" also performed at the Cross County Center and were featured on Fios1 News! 


Moving into our 10th Anniversary season, LRT's first production will be  "Mamma Mia" in January of 2019, our teen musical will be "Fame the Musical" in April of 2019 , and our  multi-genratioanl summer show  will be "Brigadoon"  in July of 2019 ! We are also planning cabarets and concerts to mark our 10th Anniversary! 


  We have expanded our programming to produce musicals that appeal to audiences and actors of all ages, and we have seen the joy that our shows bring to those watching and those onstage.

DONATE TO US!

     We have expanded our programming to produce musicals that appeal to audiences and actors of all ages, and we have seen the joy that our shows bring to those watching and those onstage. However to continue to produce these shows, and to be able to continue our upward trajectory of growth and expansion, we need your support. Ticket sales only account for a very small portion of our income and cannot alone support the rising costs of producing a show.


   Your generous donation goes straight to producing our 2018 season and towards the future of LRT ! All funds go directly towards renting more and newer lights, costumes, set, musicians, rehearsal and theater space rental, helping to pay our wonderful tech and creative teams and all of the other many elements that go toward producing a wonderful piece of theater.  


   As a 501(c3) Non-Profit Corporation, all of your donations are tax-deductible and as a thank you for your contribution your name and/or your business's name will be listed in all of our show programs for the entire season. In addition to our sincerest thanks, any donations over $100 receive two free tickets to one of our productions as well as a full page ad thanking you or promoting your business in one of our programs. Any donation over $200 receives two free tickets to our full season and a full page ad in all of our programs!


We have seen the immense joy, satisfaction, and renewed interest in the performing arts that having an affordable and high-quality theatre company in Southern Westchester area has brought. We have seen our actors and crew become an ever-growing family during rehearsals, and have seen how important having this company as an artistic outlet is to our performers both young and old. We have experienced our patrons leaving our shows saying how impressed they were by the talent and the production quality and promising to rave to their friends thereby causing our audiences to grow and build a dedicated fanbase. And we have seen the children who have come to our shows as first-time theatrical audience members telling their parents how much they loved coming to see live theater. We truly believe we have a very unique and special place in the arts in Westchester, and just want to continue to be able to bring that same interest and love for the performing arts to the area.

 

   We are so thankful for every donation, whether great or small. Any amount that can be given truly does make a huge difference. Help us to continue to let this little community theater that could grow!
