Summer Rep to Present 'CAMP ROCK' and THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE at the Civic Theatre, 7/25-8/3
The Grand Rapids Civic Theatre and School of Theatre Arts have announced the Summer Repertory Theatre (SRT) presentation of Camp Rock: The Musical and The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
Summer Repertory Theatre is a program of the School of Theatre Arts. This well rounded program offers students, ages 14-19, a hands-on theatre experience supported under the direction of Civic Theatre professionals and volunteers. Students hone their performances skills: singing, acting, and dancing while they also learn the more technical aspects of theatre including set design, costume design, marketing, backstage work, sound and lights, and tickets selling.
The program originated, as Junior Summer Stock, in 1994. At that time, it consisted of one show performed by two separate casts. Due to increased popularity from auditioning students and general public demand for performances, the program was redesigned and launched as Summer Repertory Theatre in 2004. Each season, the Theatre selects a musical and non-musical for the students to produce.
"The quality of these productions continues to grow and delight audiences," stated School Director Penelope Notter. "We include these performances as a part of our Season Line-Up."
This summer's productions promise enjoyment for the whole family, and will performed on an alternating schedule between July 25 and August 3, 2014.
