North Texas Performing Arts (NTPA) is dedicated to developing the character of youth through quality performing arts education and family entertainment.
Artist of the Month
Lindsey Lederer is no stranger to North Texas Performing Arts. She started with the organization as a student, taking the stage and falling in love with the performing arts on Plano Children’s Theatre stages, where her favorite role was playing Millie in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. After lighting her passion for the theatre arts, Lindsey graduated from the NTPA program and went on to complete her Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theater and minor in psychology from Ouachita Baptist University. She has performed with major entertainment corporations, such as Disney and Six Flags and spent almost the last two years working at Prestonwood Baptist Church as the Children’s Creative Arts Coordinator.
However, she never really left NTPA, spending her summers working NTPA Summer Camps, and then working in the NTPA offices supporting fundraising. She eventually began directing for NTPA and now takes on the opportunity to lead the two newest NTPA theaters (Frisco Youth Theatre and NTPA Dallas) to an exciting future. Favorite NTPA directing credits include Annie Jr., A Year With Frog and Toad Kids, Junie B. Jones the Musical, Jungle Book Kids, Music Man Jr., and Cinderella G2K. Currently she is proud to be the director of Frisco Youth Theatre’s 5th Anniversary production of THE WIZARD OF OZ. Lindsey strives to instill a great passion of the arts in all of her students and to make a difference in the lives of youth throughout the artistic process.
