Welcome to LATTE Theater, the La Grange Area Teen Theater Ensemble, a dynamic theatrical company that has served the area teens 11 – 19 since 2009!
LATTE Theater develops college to professional level theatricality, collaborative leadership, socio-emotional growth and empowerment, creativity, and critical thinking skills for life. We encourage well rounded, active community participation – all while having a blast making memories.
We are a close-knit troupe that inspires each other to fully realize our potential. The skills follow throughout your life – and the unforgettable memories and laughter will stay with you always…
Teen members learn: directing, assistant directing, stage management, scriptwriting, choreography, set design, prop master, warm-ups, public relations, and advertising. Whatever the opportunity, the focus is on education and empowerment. The Pfluger Empathy Movement Method helps shape strong acting skills and delivers incredible stage productions, all while protecting the teen psyche as they continue to grow and develop on and off the stage.
Also, Midwest Theater Professionals form connections with our teens while teaching in our acting workshops held twice a year for the aspiring actor, writer, and director that focuses on improvisation, stage combat physicality, projection, enunciation, stage chemistry, relationship development and much more.
LATTE Teen theater is a jolt of energy that sends off a myriad of wonderful ripples – in the community, the friendships formed, the skills attained that radiate through the “frothiness” of life! Whether for a college internship, part of the junior or senior teen troupe, or as a mentor – LATTE teaches leadership and stagecraft.
College internships are available for application in the areas of public relations, graphic arts, videography, and project management.

Thanks a LATTE!
A latte (the drink) is a strong coffee topped with frothed steamed milk.
How apt that our acronym describes the troupe so perfectly!
LATTE Theater, the La Grange Area Teen Theater Ensemble, boasts a strong team of teens who have frothy fun at every rehearsal and who aim to bring that fun out to the audience at every show.
LATTE Theater is completely invested as a collaborative team. The process of putting on a show is just that – a process. The teens work hard together, play hard together, and grow together as they reach and attain their goal of performing of semi-professional productions for the community.
Though we are a local theater ensemble, teens travel from Indiana, Wisconsin, and further to take part in the program. Many of our teens graduate on to incredible heights in the arts and otherwise.
Using the Pfluger Movement Method, troupe members with experience within LATTE help guide each other with their strengths through an age-blind focus. We use strong collaborative leadership to help each other grow, and empower each other, on and off the stage!
