Tibbits Opera House



Workshop July 7-12  * Showcase July 13

Students interested in all things theatre, both on stage AND off are encouraged to attend one or both sessions of the week-long summer workshop that will explore all aspects of theatre.

The ACTING sessions are split into two: A morning session is available to students grades 7-12 while the afternoon session is available to students grades 3-6. Students will hone their acting skills. Through acting games and collaboration exercises students will learn to be comfortable on stage before quickly transferring into ‘rehearsal’ mode to work on the workshop’s performance showcase.

Additionally, the exciting afternoon session for students in grades 7-12 explores TECHNICAL THEATRE and the world of theatrical design. Whether exploring lighting, prop, set, or sound design, the sessions will give a well-rounded, hands-on technical education where students will work on becoming the crew for the performance showcase (when they’re not performing, if they are doing both sessions).

Led by experienced theatre instructor Chad Tallon along with professional technician Lexa Walker and assisted by actor Riley Bannister from July 7-12, the workshop culminates with the showcase on July 13 for students to show off their new skills! Along with their instruction, workshop-goers will receive a t-shirt and a ticket to attend a professional Tibbits Summer Theatre production.
