IVT hosts summer theater workshops for youth

Indian Valley Theatre offers summer workshops for children and youth that provide a fun, safe and rewarding atmosphere to learn about theater and build their confidence performing.

Students will be introduced to the many facets of theater including building sets, props, costuming and understanding the basics of putting on a show. Not only will they rehearse the play, but they also will participate in theater games and activities to develop poise, voice, confidence and movement and create an understanding of the characters for the play.

This year, IVT will stage "The Sasparilla Kid and the Bally Hoo Belle Gang," written by Alethia Hummel, for the first- through sixth-grade age group. Every child will be cast in a part adapted to fit their specific talents and needs that allow them to explore, imagine, create and have fun.

Classes for the children's workshop run from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday, June 10-21. Performances will be at 6:30 p.m. June 21 and 2 p.m., June 22. Register by June 7.

Students entering seventh grade in the fall through just graduated high school seniors are eligible to participate in the Tween/Teen Theatre Workshop. Classes will run from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday, July 15-26, with two performances on July 27.

The Tween/Teen Workshop will perform "The Snow Queen," by Hans Christian Anderson, adapted by Evelyn Merritt. Register by July 8.

Classes and performances for both workshops are held at the Sandwich Opera House, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich. Students are expected to attend all classes and final student performances. The fee for the program is $90 per student and includes a T-shirt. If three or more children from the same family register, the cost for the third student and each student thereafter is $75.

Registration can be made online at indianvalleytheatre.com or by mail by downloading the registration form.
