OMG! Rosemary Newcott, the Sally G. Tomlinson Artistic Director of Theatre for Youth, once again demonstrates her talent for developing new children’s work by staging The Real Tweenagers of Atlantaan improvisational musical for tweenagers. Conceived and directed by Newcott, this new musical created from interviews with 'tweens in our community is part talent show, part pep rally. Young and old, you might just find maybe we’re all a little 'tween after all. ROTFL.
