Summer Lab on Stage


Open to students entering Grades 4–8
Mornings: 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.


Full Session: June 24–August 2


Summer Lab on Stage enters its seventeenth season as a unique Summer Lab program, combining both acting and music into a theatre experience that is both fun and rewarding. Past Music Department Chair Katy Sinclair teams with Lab faculty scion Marc Piane, a former teacher at Lab and now a professional musician and jazz instructor, and art teacher Illia Mazurek to develop, stage, orchestrate, and choreograph the annual On-Stage extravaganza. These pros draw additional choreography and improvisation resources from the world-class theater scene in Chicago, and students are more confident, more self-aware, and better able to interact and collaborate with their fellow students as a result.

Summer Lab on Stage is a big confidence builder and a ton of fun. Life on the boards is like nothing else. Get ready for the driving pace of this energetic production as you'll be singing, dancing, and acting on the first day. A pair of matinees and an evening show for Summer Lab on Stage mark the culmination of students' summer success.

Summer Lab on Stage is a six-week, morning (8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.) program. Most students will select an afternoon activity to fill out their schedules, and many will also select Summer Lab Sports Camps for the 3:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m. time period.
