What is SummerStage?

An Eight Day Residential Summer THEATRE Program

Rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders

Students get an opportunity to collaborate and create with students from all over the state of Arkansas

Made available for FREE to students through funding from the Arkansas Department of Education as a part of their Academic Enrichment for the Gifted and Talented in Summer (AEGIS) programs

The program is facilitated by TheatreSquared - an award-winning regional theatre company, located in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  The program offers a unique exposure to nontraditional methodologies of creating theatre, placing them in the dual role of writer and performer.  Students work with professional playwrights, poets, directors, musicians and actors to explore the process of creating a unique performance.  During our residential sessions, students work collaboratively as an ensemble to devise an original script that will be rehearsed for an end-of-session showcase.

Our faculty members are professional artists, who hold Masters Degrees in their artistic disciplines.  Over the course of eight days, students will be given the opportunity to work with professional directors, playwrights, poets, musicians and performers.  These professional artists, who have years of experience teaching, will help guide the students through the process of creating original work through non-traditional methodologies.  Students will also have the opportunity to explore written work, but also experience performance art, musical performances and visual art installations.
