JUNIOR ARTS SUMMER WORKSHOP 2015

ENROLLMENT STARTING IN JANUARY!

LCAA 2015 Junior Arts Summer Theatre Workshop

Get dramatic this summer!!

Summer 2015 will be the eighth year of our very successful and popular Junior Arts Summer Workshop, and this year’s workshop promises to be super fun! The play will be an original story written by Debra E. Leopard called The Secret of the Golden Medallion. This full-length play was the first summer workshop production and has been embellished with new characters and much more comedy. The play is an allegory based on the Medieval Morality Play format and the experience will teach the participants about Theatre History while having fun! There is an evil peddler in the Kingdom who wants to take over the world. The Lands of the Kingdom, each represented by a different color… Pacifica, Bellicosia, Pusillania, Despondencia and Stoicia have very different ways of handling problems. All the lands must find a way to work together to defeat the peddler or they will all be destroyed. It will take a couple of kids, a queen, a Herald, a whole bunch of Jesters and the leaders of the various lands to defeat the evil genius Belial. Participants in the workshop will audition and are guaranteed a speaking role. Students learn about theatre by participating in a real community theatre play from start to finish. Students will learn about many aspects of theatre including acting techniques, character development, taking direction, and basic theatre terminology. They will be directed by a professional with over 38 years of experience in a quality production. This is the perfect opportunity for young actors of all skill levels to again valuable stage experience! Tuition is $185 plus a non-refundable deposit of $30. Also included are a pizza party and a show t-shirt! Enrollment is limited so don’t delay!
