Registration open for Green Room Gang Sr., Jr.
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.
