Not one, but two, yes count them, two opportunities for you or yours to strut the stage, blink into the limelight and chew the scenery this summer.
First, the Seattle Public Theater (on Green Lake) is seeking interns for the summer. Kenna Kettrick writes:
Are you between the ages of 14-25, and interested in teaching or directing theater? We have an internship for you!
Interns work with our professional teaching artists, with younger children’s camps or older students’ multi-week productions. Internships can range from assisting camp teachers to assistant directing or dramaturgy for plays.
Most internships do not offer a stipend, but we can offer community service hours / volunteer hours for anyone seeking those, plus fantastic resume credit and letters of recommendation.
We have Shakespeare, comedy, pirates and a whole bunch more; check out our full schedule here: http://seattlepublictheater.org/summer-schedule.htm
Interested? Please send a resume and brief introductory cover letter, indicating which camps you’d like to work on, to Kenna Kettrick at [email protected].
Then, right here in Wallingford, Stone Soup Theatre is offering week-long drama camps for “children ages 3 to 20” (hint to SST: between ages 16 and 40, people do like to be referred to as “children”). Camps include:
- Under the Sea and Superhero camp: Little ones learn physical and vocal control alongside problem solving skills all in the name of play!
- Favorite stories like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Roger the Jolly Pirate. Musical sensations like For the Gleeks or hands-on creativity with Theatre Crafts. Lion, Witch has simple musical numbers for YOUNG SINGERS.
- Simpler scripts for emerging readers include The Hobbit, Dr. Seuss’ Storyland, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. New classes include For the Gleeks, Theatre Crafts and Harriet’s Secret (for Harry Potter fans). All culminate in performance in our beautiful outdoor performance space.
- Weekly outdoor camps with musicals, comedies, Shakespeare, Greek Myths, and popular adaptations like Through the Looking Glass, Fractured Fairy Tales, The Hobbit and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. New this year: Harriet’s Secret (for Harry Potter fans) and Comedy! Comedy!
- Explore mystery, action, sword fight, or physical comedy with our teen programs: 15 Minute Hamlet, Dracula or Comedy of Errors.
“Gleeks”, we understand, are those who geek our on the hit TV show Glee. Download the full brochure for more information.
