Summer Lab Theater Ensemble is our advanced theater and performance program for students who are serious about their craft. Summer Lab Theater Ensemble is an intensive program which will create a theatrical spectacle using Ovid’s Metamorphosis as our primary source. The Greek and Roman myths are timeless stories of transformation, packed with drama. There are amazing roles to play: Icarus, Arachne and Athena, Medusa and Perseus, Orpheus and Eurydice, Persephone and Demeter, and of course, Hades. Be part of the creation of a new piece of Spectacle Theater which will include songs, dance, acting, use of large scale puppets, and objects. Together as an ensemble, we will devise, rehearse, and perform this show in six weeks! We will work on auditioning, physical training, ensemble building, choreography, vocal training, stilting, and set building. Our production premieres in the state-of-the-art Sherry Lansing Theater. Students admitted will have the privilege of working with a professional artistic director, acting coach, musician and choreographer, and a highly skilled design and tech team. This allows every cast member to participate in all artistic elements of our production. Join us on this magical adventure as we create our own production of Metamorphosis in a safe, supportive, and fun environment.
Summer Lab Theater Ensemble is selective enrollment and is audition–based.
