Summerstock Full-Day Workshops:

Our SUMMERSTOCK (ages 11 to 16) and SUMMERSTOCK JUNIOR (ages 6 to 11) programs are full-day, theatre arts workshops. No previous experience is required and registration is on a first come, first serve basis. Each session culminates in a showcase performance on the final date (see descriptions below for specific dates and times). Each program session is two weeks. There is NO registration for just one week of the program. Students must be available for both weeks of any session and its performance showcase.

The maximum number of students accepted for each two-week session is forty (40). Students are grouped according to their date of birth and will rotate throughout the day in these age-appropriate groups between experienced teaching artists for specialized instruction. Our staff consists of three (3), specialized instructors, our program director, a program assistant and three (3) to six (6) classroom assistants.

Students should bring a lunch each day. Refrigerators and microwave ovens are available for use at the theatre complex. There is no food service or transportation provided. We also have access to the playground on the Sterling Farms Complex for outdoor activities.

 

There are four, separate Summerstock program sessions:

SUMMERSTOCK CREATIVE THEATRE FOR AGES 11-16:

Through rotating study in Improv, Shakespeare and Modern Acting in age-appropriate groups (5th and 6thgrade, 7th and 8th grade, high school), students will tap into their own creativity to assemble a showcase performance on the final date drawing upon the instincts, teamwork and timing built in Improv, the technique and discipline developed in Modern Acting and the power tapped through Shakespeare’s language. Students will explore scene work for stage and screen as well as develop original scenes and sketches, including their own conceptual Shakespeare scenes drawing dialogue from the sonnets. Showcase performance is July 6, 2018 at 7:00pm.
