Summer Lab on Stage


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

Full Session: June 22–July 31


Summer Lab on Stage enters its eighteenth season as a unique Summer Lab program, combining both acting and music into a theatre experience that is both fun and rewarding. Summer Lab on Stage is co-directed by the Laboratory Schools choir teacher, Katy Sinclair, and professional jazz musician and former Lab teacher, Marc Piane. They team up with an art director to develop, stage, orchestrate, and choreograph the annual On-Stage extravaganza. Summer Lab on Stage draws additional choreography and improvisation resources from Chicago’s world-class theater scene. Students are more confident, more self-aware, and better able to interact and collaborate with their peers as a result of this experience.
Summer Lab on Stage is a confidence builder and a ton of fun. Get ready for the driving pace of this energetic production as students will be acting, dancing, and singing on the first day. The summer program culminates in two matinees and one evening performance.
Summer Lab on Stage is a six-week, morning (8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.) program. Most students will select an afternoon class to fill out their schedules, and many will also select Sports, Dance and Recreation for the 3:30–5:30 p.m. time period.
