Naples teens take the stage in very different ways this month

In a summertime of coronavirus restrictions, when there are few opportunities for teens, two productions feature them in a very different approach to theater. 

On the first day of rehearsal for “The Addams Family” musical, administrators at the Gulfshore Playhouse Star Academy were doing what one would expect in the era of coronavirus restrictions: keeping teens apart.

Steven Calakos, new education director for Gulfshore Playhouse, had taken “Social distance, everybody! Remember you need to be six feet apart,” as his mantra for the outdoor lunch hour, as kids nested on the amphitheater stage attached to the Norris Community Center.
