HAMLET, ANNIE JR. and More Among Free Shows from Taproot Theatre's Acting Studio, July-Aug 2012
Acting Studio students take the Taproot Theatre stage this summer presenting free performances to the public. Many of the two dozen day camps this summer culminate in a performance of a popular play or musical, giving students the opportunity to apply what they've learned and gain experience by taking the stage.
The public is welcome to attend performances of Two Gentlemen of Verona (July 13 at 3:00pm), Annie, Jr. (July 20 at 3:00pm & July 21 at 10:00am), Hamlet (August 3 at 3:00pm & August 4 at 10:00am) and Bye, Bye Birdie (August 17 at 3:00pm and August 18 at 10:00am), in addition to other hits. (Additional performances are listed at http://taproottheatre.org/2012-summer-camps/)
All performances take place on Friday afternoons or Saturday mornings at Taproot Theatre (204 North 85th Street) or Phinney Ridge Lutheran (7500 Greenwood Ave. N) in Seattle. Admission is free, and first come, first served. There are no tickets; just show up. Doors open 15 minutes before show time. Donations are welcomed and will be used for Studio camp scholarships. Most shows are appropriate for ages 3 and up. Babes in arms are welcome, but children who are distracting during the production may be asked to wait in the lobby. Taproot's Acting Studio reserves the right to change performance titles and schedules.
