A Kid Summer Night's Dream - Youth Play Production Series
october 2017 - march 2018
Directed by Justin Shaw
Our 2017 - 2018 Youth Play Production is for youth in grades 6-9, and it will be a series of workshops and performances for up to 25 artists. The goal is to mount an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The play’s adaptation will be developed through a contemporization of the play’s text and themes, which will be developed with the ensemble through improv-based exercises.
Each participant will play a role in the production — whether as an actor, an assistant stage manager, or backstage support. Each role will encourage team work, education, exploration, and professionalism. Rehearsals will begin with warm-up and dramaturgical activities, followed by traditional script and scene work. By incorporating these warm up and learning activities, we are encouraging the importance of “process”, “play”, and “discovery” to theatrical work.
The Play Production series will start on October 10th with rehearsals on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-8:00 pm and Sundays from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. This program will wrap up in March 2018 with two performances of A Kid Summer Night's Dream. All rehearsals and performances will be at the Suncor Energy Centre for the Performing Arts.
