SUMMER ON THE STAGE
PRICE: $485 plus HST AGES: 8 to 15
DATES: Monday to Friday, July 15th to 25th, 9am to 4pm
PERFORMANCE DAY: July 26th, 9am to 9pm
Throughout our two-week program, your child will work closely with industry professionals to create a fully staged musical production. Each child will have the opportunity to develop critical performance skills that can be applied both on and off the stage!
Every child will be assigned a speaking role and given individual attention while creating their character. Bryant Academy will strive to build the child’s confidence and strengthen their acting skills with a variety of techniques, including improvisation and scene study. Music and dance will keep your child both physically and mentally active. Your child will learn to work as a group to perform fun, challenging choreography, as well as memorable melodies that will have them singing all day long!
This year, Bryant Academy is partnering with Cixi Zhiyin Children’s Performance Association in China to bring greater cultural diversity and appreciation to the arts in Oakville. The first week of our program is focused on honing the skills listed above in preparation for week two, when our exchange begins! We will be collaborating with international students to create two diverse casts of the same musical. The program culminates in two performances at a professional theatre, where all participants will perform on stage for a live audience. When they are not performing, they will be able to support their fellow cast mates by cheering from the audience.
We can’t wait to share this unique opportunity with your child!
