FULL-DAY SUMMER CURRICULUMS: Our SUMMERSTOCK (Grade 6 to 12) and SUMMERSTOCK JUNIOR (Grade K to 5) programs are full-day, conservatory-style programs where students hone creative, performance and social skills. No previous experience is required and registration is on a first come, first serve basis. There are four separate, two-week sessions that run Monday thru Friday and can accommodate a maximum of 40 students each session. Students are then divided into age-appropriate groups for class rotations between three instructors, each specializing in their own area of study. A lunch and snack break will be part of the daily schedule. Students will need to bring their own lunch/snack and water bottles.
Each SUMMERSTOCK and SUMMERSTOCK JUNIOR session culminates in a showcase of student work. (This summer, our showcases may be recorded as opposed to live performances.)
Students participating in our Creative Theatre and Musical Theatre programs for Grades 6 to 12 must be fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated means that the student must have had their second dose of an FDA or WHO approved two dose COVID-19 vaccine, OR have had their single dose of an FDA or WHO approved single dose COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the start of the class. Students of this age range in particular have been hoping for the opportunity to further their creative development by being able to explore and respond to the use of facial expression, and to advance their stage-speaking skills unhindered by masks (if possible). The only way to to offer this safely (should circumstances allow) is by having all students in those programs fully vaccinated.
For students participating in our Junior programs for Grades K to 5, full vaccination is not required, but at present, students may need to wear masks indoors and in situations where safe social-distancing cannot be maintained. We will have access to outdoor areas of the property where students may unmask while being properly spaced. As this age range is not being vaccinated at as quick a rate as students twelve and older, we feel we cannot make full vaccination a requirement at this time. Our curriculum will focus on vocal projection, movement and using the body to create character, and express intention and emotion.
