Winter Junior Company Show: Gulliver +
Gulliver’s Travels in the 21st Century
For Grades 6-8

In the Winter Junior Company Show Gulliver +, students will create and perform a play with music that explores and pokes fun at our modern world through imagination, metaphor, humor and song. By audition only.

About the play: In 1726, Jonathan Swift’s best-selling book Gulliver’s Travels told the story of Gulliver – castaway on faraway islands and encountering odd creatures – to reflect on, parody and make fun of the politics and society of the times. What would a modern-day Gulliver see? Who needs to be taken down a peg? Celebrity culture, political tricksters, viral video stars, anxious officials? Would he travel in this world or another? You decide as you create this engaging twist on a classic tale.

Pre-Professional Lab Program: (for those who just “know”)
For Grades 7-12

Through our Lab Program, we offer to those who simply know ‘theatre is it’, a comprehensive cohesive program that will give you the tools needed to compete at a university or professional level. The design of the program is simple – each Lab will work to sharpen your skills in an intensive conservatory-style program. Master classes and artist hours with visiting industry professionals will contribute to the overall experience.
Fall/Winter only
Tuition: $185/session
Minimum commitment: 3 months

Lab Collective (by audition only) Grades 7-12.
(Primary instructors: Annie Enneking and Reed Sigmund).
The Lab Collective is experimental – we think of it truly as a lab, designed to help our students develop their acting skills. Students will explore imaginative and fundamental approaches to scene study while establishing a foundation and common language as an ensemble. Through relaxation and trust exercises, sensory work, text analysis and the exploration of techniques for making active choices in the moment – each actor will work to discover the techniques that best support their work. Students will learn to create rich believable characters, giving life to the stories of their imaginations and dreams! Because we are structured as a lab, there is no public performance or production of a play. Removing the pressure of an audience allows our students to focus on honing their skills for use in future performances, and because there are no leading performers, every student receives the same amount of attention.
Pre-Requisite: Acting: Process and Performance, Classical Theatre Intensive or similar intensive
Class Days and Times: Meets for five 3 and 1/2 hour classes each session Mondays 4:30-8pm
