Nxt Generation Theatrics is
a new non-profit theater company run entirely by teens. All functions related to both the organization and its productions are performed and managed by teenagers.
The organization was formed in order
to create more opportunities to empower teens and to help the next generation gain experience and exposure to the arts by jumping in and managing every aspect of creating a theatrical experience.

NGT selects shows that are
challenging and unexpected, in order to show the world what teens are capable of.

Our first production - the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical
NEXT TO NORMAL - was meant to premiere in May, 2020, in the heart of New York's Theater District. The show was deep into rehearsals when COVID hit, and had to be postponed, but will be back in the Spring of 2022! In the interim, NGT produced two highly successful virtual concerts: the NGT WINTER CONCERT, and NGT ROCKS, each spotlighting rising young talents.

NGT was founded by LANA SCHWARTZ (age 17), a musical theater performer and producer. 

Lana heard from so many of her friends that they were hungry to take on roles that teens so rarely get to handle - directing, producing, stage managing, designing, and more. She was eager to help create those opportunities for her generation. So, she formed NGT; securing funding, a theater, a cast and crew, insurance, the rights to their first production, and more. She is so proud to be able to work with the talented team at NGT and to help them achieve their dreams.

Lana is an 11th grader at the Professional Performing Arts School (PPAS) in New York City. She has performed on stage and screen in New York and Los Angeles. Favorite roles include Fanny Brice in Funny Girl (French Woods), Livvy Lovewell in Endangered (Off-Broadway), Tina Denmark in Ruthless (French Woods), Bella in the short film Tracks (starring opposite Lakeith Stanfield), and Nessarose in the pilot production of Wicked Jr.
