Join Pittsburg Community Theatre for our annual Jr. Starz Summer Theatre Workshop for Children ages 6 to 12! This two-week workshop has been so popular, we began offering it in a morning and an afternoon session. It culminates in public performances on Friday, June 22.
Session 1 will be held from June 11-22, 8 a.m. to noon.
Session 2 will be held from June 11-22, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The shows will be held at 6 and 8 p.m. on June 22.
The workshop is under the direction of Megan Potter Gabehart, a member of the PCT Board of Directors who by day is a music teacher; she has directed Jr. Starz each summer for many years. Children will learn the basics of acting, dancing, singing, and will help to create costuming and sets for the show. They’ll make crafts, enjoy snacks, and develop new friendships as they work to produce their show.
The show plot:
Skyler is about to turn 12, and she’s planned the biggest celebration of the year. But in the middle of the party, something mysterious happens – all the adults suddenly vanish! Trapped in the backyard, the kids realize they must create a brand new society. However when they elect Skyler’s older brother, Charlie, as their ruler, things really begin to spin out of control. Eventually the kids learn a big lesson in responsibility, while Skyler and Charlie develop a greater respect for one another.
Cost: $50 per child.
*Class size is limited to the first 40 registrations received per session. Enrollment opens on April 23 at Memorial Auditorium. Enrollment flyers will be uploaded to the PCT website at www.pctinfo.org by April 1.
