    Schubert's Last Serenade is a comedy about individualism and making your own choices. The main characters, Alfred and Bebe are placed in a pretentious French restaurant and must overcome the demands of stereotyping to be who they really are, two young people in love.  The show includes a mod-rocker, Franz Schubert, an indifferent waiter, an impatient cook, and a megalomaniac Matre'D played by fourteen to sixteen- year-old actors from EASY Theatre's Touring Teen Troupe.

    Schubert's Last Serenade was produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

    Dr. James R. Miller the Chairman of the Department of Theatre and Dance at Sam Houston State University, who was the Commentator for TNT's Youth Conference where 13 of the best youth companys from Texas perfomed; commented on the incredible maturity of the acting, the complexity of the script, the attention to detail, and how well our cast stayed true to the style of the play from beginning to end.  He said the play was a delightful way to conclude three days of shows.
