PEACE. LOVE. ARTS. YOU!
A 3-week exploration of Music Theater Performance and Production for regional youth age 9-15 establishing a deeper understanding of all of the elements of Musical theatre.
Led by professional teaching artists with weekly master classes from industry professionals, students explore elements of music, spoken word, movement, costume and stage design emblematic of the Woodstock era. Through the creation of a collaborative, devised theater piece, students gain hands-on experience with foundational elements of theater including acting, writing, directing and designing.
Anchored in social engagement, P.L.A.Y. Theater values the contributions of each participant, highlights the importance of working as a team, and inspires participants to explore new adventures in the arts.
