The Stampede Troupe, Greeley’s oldest continuously operating community theatre (since 1974) announces its first summer theatre workshop for young people, June 3 – June 27. Following the successes of the Troupe’s all-children’s productions of “A Little Princess” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” this exciting new theatrical opportunity for local youngsters will feature three major strands of learning: music, acting, and technical skills.
The workshop features an 8-1 student/teacher ratio, lead by a core staff of Linda Johnston (retired elementary teacher with 26 years experience in the classroom and countless productions as an actress and singer), Brittany Corliss (Troupe Board Member and actress, UNC graduate with a degree in elementary education with a creative arts emphasis, currently teaching in Kersey, Colorado), Kayla Boldy (UNC graduate with a degree in opera performance, and the director of the Troupe’s two children’s shows), and Nicole Harwell (2013 recipient of a master’s degree in piano performance from UNC, and the musical director of the Troupe’s “Diamond Studs” production last summer). Noel Johnston, long-time director of theatre at Greeley Central High School and current Troupe president, will serve as workshop administrator.
Students will receive expert instruction in singing technique, musical theatre singing and choreography, and musical stage performance. Acting experiences will include acting skills, memorization skills, script analysis, scene selection, and scene performance. Technical arts activities include scenic painting, costuming, and stage make-up.
The workshop is limited to the first 24 fully paid registrants. Enrolling students must be currently in 4th through 8th grade. When the class is full, a waiting list will be created. Cost is $125 per student; for two or more children from the same family, cost is $100 per child.
Classes will meet from 9 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., each Monday through Thursday, beginning June 3 and concluding June 27th with a “Lunch Pail Theatre” presentation of songs and scenes, supported by student created make-up, costumes, and set paintings. A pot-luck lunch buffet will top off the day.
