Ready for another year of SRTI magic?
Our 2018/19 season of wow is right around the corner but our current calendar still has a few tricks up its sleeve.Whether you’re a soon-to-be rock star or a free-spirited romantic, we have just the right show for you, brought to you by the multi-talented students of our Summer Repertory Theatre Intensive (SRTI).
SRTI provides young theatre-lovers with the opportunity to not only perform in, but produce their own play or musical. For the past few years, this program has allowed young creatives the chance to craft, produce, and perform in their own play or musical, coached by both Civic Theatre professionals. Students are given the opportunity to learn the art of performance through specialized dancing, singing, and acting classes. Those with an interest in the technical aspect of theatre are participating in hands on classes in set and costume design, lights and sound, and backstage crewing. Multiple weeks of work culminate in a showcase of stunning proportions, and this year’s lineup is guaranteed to delight!
This year’s musical is sure to “bring the house down”. Strap in for School of Rock, playing July 27-August 4! Based on the Paramount cult comedy starring Jack Black, and featuring original music by hit-maker Andrew Lloyd Webber, this wild ride follows rocker Dewey Finn through heartbreak, self-discovery, and occasional chaos as he trains a class of fifth graders for an upcoming Battle of the Bands contest. Rock and roll has never looked this good.
Also on stage this summer is the timeless adventure of four sisters in Little Women, based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott. Journey with Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth through the trials of youth and womanhood, as they fight societal pressures with the undying bonds of sisterhood. It’s a tale of family values that transcends generations; young and old will delight in this play, running July 28-August 5.
Don’t delay. Reserve your tickets today for both productions and let our aspiring stars of the stage sweep you off your feet!
