Registration has begun for Perseverance Theatre's Summer Theatre Arts Rendezvous (STAR). Rehearsals and classes begin July 12 for three shows. This five-week program is for students ages 10-18 who are enthusiastic about theater. As a theater training program, STAR is a great opportunity for kids with little to no experience as well as those with some shows under their belts. In addition to rehearsals, students will have daily workshops in areas such as voice and movement, which will teach them techniques to help strengthen and build their acting skills.
This year, students have the chance to work on one of three shows. The first is an original piece, "One Hundred Thousand Drops of Rain," based on Tlingit shamanism and written by local playwright Ishmael Hope. "The Wizard of Oz" and "The Hobbit" will also be performed.
STAR runs July 12 through August 14. Tuition is $425. Full scholarships are available for Alaska Native students. Call today to sign up, or call Shona at 364-2421 ext. 232 for more details.
