Summer Youth Players: A Midsummer Night's Dream
TEEN THEATRE CAMP (Grades 6-12)
June 16 & 17, 2014
July 7-25, 2014
PLUS SIX PERFORMANCES
July 25 - Aug 3, 2014
Have a "Dream" Summer at Lakeshore!
This Summer Youth Players (SYP) day camp is an opportunity for teens entering grades 6-12 to participate in all aspects of a theatrical production. The journey begins with an acting workshop that prepares and casts campers in their roles (all campers will be assigned a role).
The single cast ensemble will then dig into the text, using the script as a platform, to strengthen theatrical skills in preparation for the culmination of camp, six performances of a fully-realized production for friends, family and the general public at Lakeshore Players Theatre.
This full production is complete with an original set, professional lighting, sound, costumes, and memories that last a lifetime! Along the way, there will be games, tips, and all the humor, action, and excitement of "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
A WORD FROM THE DIRECTOR, AARON RADATZ
I am drawn to youth theatre by the possibilities it presents. Increasingly, students are "molded" by learning institutions, tasked with learning rote facts and reproducing them on command. As an educator, I can certainly appreciate the need for common, basic knowledge in the classroom, but what I fear gets neglected--and what I strive to carve out time for in my work--is space for personal connection, for storytelling, for complicated questions and messy answers.
