SUMMIT, NJ - Dreamcatcher will hold its summer theatre program for students ages 10 - 17, entitled 'Dreamcatcher Junior', beginning July 10 through July 28.
Registration for the three-week theatre experience -- which combines training that see students build skills and study with theatre professionals in a variety of subjects -- is now open, with the students ultimately having the opportunity to create and perform their own play.
Students receive individual attention, constructive feedback, and the support needed to achieve their personal goals.
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 program will be held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a special performance July 28 at 7 p.m., at the Oakes Center, located at 120 Morris Avenue.
The cost is $825 for all three weeks, with limited need-based 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, with applications and program information available by calling 908-514-9654, contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting dreamcatcherrep.org.
