What is SummerStage?
An Eight Day Residential Summer Program.
For Rising 10th, 11th and 12th graders.
Made available for FREE to students through a grant from the Arkansas Department of Education's for AEGIS programming.
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.
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.
