, a non-profit youth theater and communications organization based in Clinton, is growing in more ways than one. The "kids" who once starred as little ZuZu Bailey in their production of "It's A Wonderful Life," are not exactly kids anymore.
"Kidz Konnection just keeps on growing and with it many of our long-time actors have now outgrown the "kids" label of our company," says Artistic Director Laura Attanasio. "To meet the high demand of our young adults seeking challenging acting opportunities as well as continue our efforts to bring classical literature to the community in a meaningful way, we are now adding a new advanced acting division, Shoreline Actors Collective, offering mature theater and educational programming to Connecticut libraries and schools."
This new Shoreline Actor's Collective will bring quality theater free to Clinton and its surrounding communities in an effort to inspire children and young adults to pick up the classics for both performer and audience viewer, said Attanasio.
