Tahoe Arts Project is launching an after-school children’s theater program, ACT ONE, at the South Tahoe Middle School (STMS) mid-March 2018!
ACT ONE is a new program that will help fill a void for middle school-aged student’s hunger for creative expression, given the absence of drama and other arts programming available to students at a critical developmental age.
ACT ONE will offer children more opportunities to directly engage in performing arts as actors, and also in supporting roles. Students can participate as assistant directors, working with small groups of students and individuals on lines and scenes, managing the backstage during productions and helping with costumes, set design, and other tasks as needed. The production will be a musical and students will have the opportunity to sing and dance.
Rehearsals will be taking place Monday and Friday’s starting March 12th, 2:00-3:30PM in Room 2 at STMS. Starting three weeks prior to the production students will also meet on Wednesday’s immediately after school 1:00-2:30PM. The musical production will be held in early June. Students can enroll by adding their name to the sign-up sheet at the counselor’s office at the STMS.
Donations are greatly appreciated to support a stipend for our director and STMS teacher liaison, materials for the stage set and costumes, and to help publicize the musical production. Donors will be recognized in the production program and the TAP website.
