SUMMIT, NJ - Registration for Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre's summer experience for tweens and teen, entitled "Dreamcatcher Junior," is now open. The program, designed for students ages 10-17, will be held July 11 through July 29.

Dreamcatcher’s Summer Theatre Conservatory has been redesigned for the summer of 2016 as a three-week theatre experience, offering students the opportunity to build their skills and study with theatre professionals in a variety of subjects, with participants then creating and performing their own play.

The program takes place Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a special performance July 29 at 7 p.m., at the Oakes Center, located at 120 Morris Avenue.

In the first week, the ensemble begins to come together through classes and workshops in acting, improv, playwriting, singing and movement. These and other skills will be explored as the group builds the foundation for their creative process.

The second week focuses on the development and writing of an original play, which will also include music and movement. Students have the opportunity to shape their own characters and performances, which might include new subjects explored in the first week such as stage combat and physical comedy.

In the third week, the cast and their director, musical director and choreographer hone and refine their original work in preparation for its presentation on the final evening of the program.

The cost of "Dreamcatcher Junior" is $750 for all three weeks, with limited scholarships available. Discounts are provided for those who register before April 15. Admission is on a first come, first served basis until the program is filled or until the deadline of June 1. Applications for the program and more further information are available by calling 908-514-9654, via e-mail at info@dreamcatcherrep.org, or by visiting dreamcatcherrep.org.
