ROEPER SUMMER STOCK THEATRE 2017
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.

Taught by experienced and nurturing teachers, each session will include singing, skits, games, crafts, activities and more. Each one-week session 1/2 day session will culminate in a short performance of selected skits, songs and dances on the last day of class.

Summer Stock Theatre Junior is for children currently in grades 3 through 5. Students will have fun learning basics of theatre, specifically in the areas of character development, improvisation, movement, dance and music. At the end of the two-week session, students will give a performance for family, friends and other members of the community. Enrollment is limited to 28 participants per session.
Summer Stock Theatre Senior is for children currently in grades 5 through 11. NEW THIS YEAR - enrollment is open to students currently in 5th grade. This program provides a solid theatre basis for all students and challenges the more seasoned actor as well. At the end of three weeks, a musical is performed for family, friends and other members of the community. The productions are carefully chosen and may have appropriate mature content. 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.
