LATTE Theater presents…

The Porch Light

 An original work by Chicago Playwright, Felicia Pfluger that chronicles over 120 years (from 1893 through the present) of American life and family. Through powerful, hilarious and fun vignettes, we explore times of radical change in history, the context of cultural change, changes in the family unit, social awareness, wars… and our humanity. The Porch Light is on, children. It is time to come home.

Celebrating 10 Years

LATTE Theater, the La Grange Area Teen Theater Ensemble, is proud to have brought it’s patented movement approach of stagecraft and life development to La Grange and Chicagoland for a decade. We recognize the potential in each teen, the ripple effect to our community audiences, and even have won the 2019 Illinois “Leading Age’s Honoring Excellence Award” for our community impact and our intergenerational partnership with Plymouth Place.

Though our quality performances, LATTE entertains with full length comedic and dramatic shows and explores real emotions and current issues. Family dynamics, relationships, domestic violence, aging, mental health, literacy, estrangement, alcoholism, Alzheimer’s, social responsibility, free will vs comfort and abandonment are themes we have brought to the stage in works that range from Shakespeare through Neil Simon. These thought-provoking shows amuse and entertain our wonderful community; all while giving a beautiful launch point for discussions and introspection.

Illinois Award – Honoring Excellence

LATTE Theater is honored to announce winning Illinois Leading Age’s Honoring Excellence Community Impact Award, with their wonderful, long term community partners, Plymouth Place.

When LATTE Director, Felicia Pfluger, approached Plymouth Place for the opportunity to have the LATTE teens perform for the seniors over a decade ago, she never guessed what wonderful things would happen! Directing the talented senior citizens at Plymouth Place is always an incredible gift. And watching the seniors share their joy, wisdom, and enthusiasm with the LATTE teens, while the teens reciprocate with their enthusiasm and vibrancy. It was a perfect match from the beginning.

Fast forward ten years to a partnership that makes a beautiful community impact. These comedic and dramatic full-length theater shows explore real emotions to current issues such: as domestic violence, aging, mental health, literacy, family estrangement, alcoholism, Alzheimer’s, and abandonment. This “backdoor” of stagecraft positively impacts people both on stage and off… all while producing exceptional shows for our wonderful, supportive community. Here’s to the future!
