Record Observer - - News -

CHURCH HILL — Reg­is­tra­tion is now open for Church Hill Theatre’s 2016 Sum­mer Theatre Pro­gram, the Green Room Gang. CHT is proud to an­nounce this year marks the 18th con­sec­u­tive year of the youth pro­gram, which has pro­vided op­por­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple of the East­ern Shore to ex­pe­ri­ence true live the­ater, from auditions to cur­tain call, for nearly two decades. CHT of­fers a stand­ing ova­tion to our en­tire com­mu­nity for sup­port­ing arts ed­u­ca­tion for area chil­dren through­out the years.

Be­gun in 1999, this ex­cit­ing sum­mer pro­gram of the­ater games and train­ing cul­mi­nates in two fully staged mu­si­cals adapted for young per­form­ers. The Green Room Gang Se­nior Pro­gram, for young peo­ple en­ter­ing grades 6 through 12, be­gins on Mon­day, June 20 and runs Mon­days through Thurs­days from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Un­der the in­struc­tion of CHT veteran and staff mem­ber Liz Clarke, stu­dents will take a mag­i­cal jour­ney through the world of a play by means of dance, mu­sic, im­pro­vi­sa­tion, theatre games, act­ing, stag­ing and artis­tic in­ter­pre­ta­tion to con­ceive a role from start to fin­ish. Full tuition for the five-week GRG Sr. pro­gram is $550, with a 10 per­cent dis­count for CHT mem­bers.

Green Room Gang Ju­nior par­tic­i­pants, youths en­ter­ing grades 1 through 5, will do theatre games, learn ba­sic act­ing skills, and ex­plore singing and danc­ing while they cre­ate a mu­si­cal es­pe­cially writ- ten for young per­form­ers. This camp is led by Becca Van Aken, long-time GRG in­struc­tor and full time teacher. GRG Jr. be­gins on Mon­day, June 27 and runs Mon­days through Thurs­days from 9 a. m. to noon. Full tuition for the four­week GRG Jr. pro­gram is $ 330, with a 10 per­cent dis­count for CHT mem­bers. Schol­ar­ships are avail­able for both Sr. and Jr. camps.

Fi­nal per­for­mances for GRG will be held Thurs­day and Fri­day, July 21 and 22, at 7 p. m. and Satur­day and Sun­day, July 23 and 24, at 2 p. m.
