Revels Summer Theater Workshop

A Revels Summer Theater Workshop is a complete theater experience. In the mornings young people will participate in theater games, acting, singing and traditional dance.  In the afternoons we will be participating in "Production Time;” making the printed program; designing and building sets, costumes, props; and creating a slide show.  Along with creating the show, we will have electives, where young people can choose areas to learn more about theater including; play and song writing, creating a mummers' play, audition techniques, writing and performing a monologue, clowning, and the art of improv. 

The Revels show we are performing is TBA.   Everyone will have a part and auditions for the parts are held on the first day of the workshop.  There will be a performance at the end of the workshop.
