ROEPER SUMMER STOCK THEATRE 2014
The Roeper Summer Stock Theatre has been created to develop and showcase the skills of students who are interested in theatre training. Students work with a variety of professional theatre instructors specializing in various techniques and areas of skill development. All students participate in activities to build skills in acting, singing and dancing. Each session is customized to meet the needs of students exploring theatre for the first time, as well as the more experienced actor.
Summer Stock Theatre Junior: 4 years old - Grade 1: This program will unleash your child's imagination through an exploration of acting, music and dance. Taught by experienced and nurturing teachers, each session will include singing, skits, games, crafts, activities and more. Each one-week session will culminate in a short performance of selected skits, songs and dances on the last day of class. Enrollment is limited to 15 participants a session.
Summer Stock Theatre Junior: Grades 1 – 3: With a focus on exploration in theatre, music and dance, this program provides ample structure with plenty of time for playing and exploring different aspects of performing on the stage.

Summer Stock Theatre Junior: Grades 4 – 6: Students will have fun learning basics of theatre, specifically in the areas of character development, improvisation, movement, dance and music.

Summer Stock Theatre, Grades 6 – 12: This program provides a solid theatre basis for all students and challenges the more seasoned actor as well. At the end of four weeks, a performance is given for family, friends and other members of the community. Though we work toward the final performance, much of the instructional time is spent on developing specific skills in each discipline. Developing talent into skill is our focus as we work daily on many aspects of the three disciplines and work hard to ensure that each student is provided the opportunity to enhance their skills in a guided and nurturing way. Enrollment is limited to 38 participants per session.
