For those students that would LOVE to be part of the Summer Theatre experience but are unable to commit to the entire month of production and performances, we have just the opportunity for YOU! The week of July 8th will be open for those children wishing to come to Summer Theatre to take part in the acting, art, singing, and dancing and be a part of the JACK AND THE GIANT ensemble for this one week! Enrollment for this one week engagement is only $150.
Auditions will be held the first week of the program and will consist of singing, acting, and dance. We design our auditions to allow all students to showcase their talents whether or not they have ever auditioned before. As we approach the summer season, more information regarding the audition process and our program will be available.
Even with our top-notch staff in place, we look to improve our program through parent participation and volunteerism. Parents can volunteer in many ways including working back stage during performances, helping with costumes and sets, running workshops and craft projects, or helping with the refreshments for the performances.
On a final note, please be advised that all the students ENROLLING FOR THE ENTIRE PROGRAM will need black “JAZZ SHOES”. They can be ordered online through Discount Dance (discountdance.com) or locally at Wolfeboro Dancewear (#515- 3474) located on Varney Road in Wolfeboro!
