Record Observer - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

CHURCH HILL — Reg­is­tra­tion for Church Hill Theatre’s 19th con­sec­u­tive year of the Green Room Gang youth theater pro­gram opens on March 15.

The GRG Pro­gram 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 the en­tire community for sup­port­ing arts ed­u­ca­tion for our 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 19, and runs Mon­days through Thurs­days from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Stu­dents will learn the ropes of play by means of dance, mu­sic, im­pro­vi­sa­tion, theatre games, act­ing, stag­ing and artis­tic in­ter­pre­ta­tion to con­ceive a role from start to fin­ish.

Shan­non Whitaker, who has served as GRG in­tern for three years, will be in­struct­ing the se­nior camp. 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 theater games, learn ba­sic act­ing skills and ex­plore singing and danc­ing while they cre­ate a mu­si­cal es­pe­cially writ­ten for young per­form­ers.

GRG Jr. be­gins on Mon­day, June 26, and runs Mon­days through Thurs­days from 9 a.m. to noon.

Becca Van Aken re­turns for her 12th year as GRG Ju­nior in­struc­tor. Full tu­ition for the four-week GRG Jr. pro­gram is $330, with a 10 per­cent dis­count for CHT mem­bers.

Schol­ar­ships are avail­able for both Sr. and Jr. camps. Pre­vi­ous GRG in­tern Iz Cle­mens and Wash­ing­ton Col­lege se­nior Erin Coff­man will be as­sist­ing both in­struc­tors as 2017 in­terns.

Fi­nal per­for­mances for GRG are 7 p.m. Thurs­day and Fri­day, July 20 and 21, and 2 p.m. Satur­day and Sun­day, July 22 and 23.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call the Church Hill Theatre busi­ness of­fice at 410-556-6003, or email of­fice@church­hillthe­atre.org.

The en­roll­ment pe­riod runs from March 15 through May 31.

Har­mony on the Bay, Centreville’s own Sweet Ade­lines, will per­form a pre­view of their com­pe­ti­tion songs March 28 at the Amer­i­can Le­gion Jeff Davis Post in Centreville.
