SUMMER THEATRE ACADEMY

SUMMER THEATRE ACADEMY

The Southeastern Players and the Southeastern Regional School District are pleased to announce their Southeastern Summer Theatre Academy in the brand new Southeastern Performing Arts Center! This summer theatre program is open to all communities and offers a professional and fun experience!
We are offering three summer sessions.  Each session will culminate with a full stage performance open to the public! The first session (July 11-29) will produce The Wizard of Oz.  The second session (August 1-19) will produce Moana.  Both of these sessions for grades 2-8 will run on Monday-Thursday from 8:30 AM–1:30 PM.
There will also be a Teen Intensive program for grades 9-12 that will run Monday-Thursday from 8:30 AM–1:30 PM during the two weeks from July 25 – Aug 5.  This session will culminate with a Showcase Performance of scenes and songs from major Broadway plays, musicals, and Hollywood films.  Both acting and technical students are encouraged to participate. This Showcase session will be taught and attended by theater professionals and local university faculty.  These invited guests will then work with our students and give them feedback to make their auditions and performances stronger.  This showcase is designed to give our students “a foot in the door” to our local theater and film industry.
The program will be led by Southeastern teachers and drama directors, Christopher Crossen-Sills and James Fernandes, as well as their vocational and extracurricular drama students.
Southeastern Summer Theater Academy is also offering financial assistance and transportation from the Southeastern region.
