PROGRAMS FOR YOUNG ACTORS
Featuring a month-long main session and two new 1-week sessions!
SummerStage programs run Mondays-Fridays 9 am – 4 pm.
Programs culminate with performances on Theatrical Outfit’s Stage.
Theatrical Outfit solidified its commitment to theater education for youth with the inaugural season of SummerStage at the Outfit in 2015. By the following year, enrollment had doubled for this four-week summer program which emphasizes skill building, musical theater production and love for the art form of theater.
This season, TO Education is introducing a series of Masterclasses for young actors which are thematically tied to each mainstage TO production. Each workshop focuses on a different style of theater creation, and enrollment includes a ticket to that day’s show.
Our philosophy of theater education begins and ends with a focus on story. Everything we teach, everything we model, everything we practice is centered on the idea that clear and inventive communication between actors and audience of a given or devised story is what makes theater “work.” All of our instruction – be it in blocking, scene creation, character development, choreography, vocal work, design or improvisation – is rooted in this simple yet crucial idea.
Additionally, we place a high value on ensemble-building in both our camp and workshop environments. The camaraderie that exists amongst our students is extraordinary and largely derives from the emphasis we place on ensemble building, mutual respect and a shared love for the creative process.
