Class Name: Play for Grades 3-5 "The Enchanted Bookshop"


Show Director: Samantha Tremblay

Class Director: Sarah Shaffer

Q: What does "Performance Workshop" mean?

A: A "Performance Workshop" is a play that will incorporate a lot of instruction time for students to familiarize themselves with being on stage and to learn acting techniques.  Some rehearsal time will be used as class time. Sets and costumes will be simple.  This includes a tech week and 2 public performances.  This is a great way for young people to become familiar with all things theater and for experienced actors to improve their skills.  Everyone who signs up will be in the show.  Students will learn and work on auditioning techniques and then audition for individual parts during the first or second week. 

***Students need to be available to attend all of TECH WEEK: 4:30 PM- 6:30 PM Mon Mar 20 - Thurs Mar 23

For performances: Fri Mar 24 they need to arrive at 6 PM for a 7 PM performance

Sat Mar 25 they need to arrive at 1 PM for a 2 PM matinee performance.

***Lastly, 1 parent/guardian per student is needed to volunteer for at  least 1 thing to help with in regards to the production. A "sign up genius" will be shared with options. PCA will provide simple costuming, but shoes and modesty wear need to be provided by the participant. We will give as much notice as possible and work with participants to make what they already have at home work, or help find the most cost effective options to buy.
