TIP Announces Youth Program 2012
TIP will present a new program starting soon.
TIP Youth aims to provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge and practical techniques in theatre and performing in a professional-level play or musical, so that they may use this experience in many aspects of their student and adult lives. The workshops will be a fun and creative environment for students to make new friends and produce a show!
Places are available for ages 8-12 ("Act One", rehearsing Saturdays) and 13-17 ("Act Two" rehearsing Sundays). High school seniors not eligible as schedule will conflict with graduation timetables.
