Youth theater workshop offered

Young people ages 5 to 16 who have an interest in acting, singing or dancing are invited to participate in the Sierra Tahoe Theater Company’s Summer Youth Theater Workshop. This annual summertime event teaches the various aspects of theater and production skills. In addition to singing, dancing and acting, participants also can work with costuming, set building, lighting, sound and choreography.

The program is under the direction of Bob Grant, who has directed countless musicals, including the recent production of “Mame” in Carson City and who directs the local holiday musical production “Ebenezer Scrooge.” Past children’s productions have included “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Tom Sawyer,” “Rumpelstiltskin” and “The Wiz.” Many of the young people who have participated in the youth theater workshops in past years are now performing in college and university productions.

“At first, the workshop was put on hold for this season due to some remodel work at the high school. It was apparent, though, that the kids in the community were excited to do the theater workshop again this year. So, when the remodel of the high school theater became delayed we got the ball rolling,” Grant said.

“We’ve already met with some of the participants and their talent and enthusiasm is great.”

The workshop begins July 9 and will meet from 10 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday through July 26 at the studio, 2107 James Ave. Performances will be the last week. There are still a few openings in the workshop for interested young people. Anyone who would like to join this talented group of actors, singers and dancers should call Mary Johnson at (530) 577-1517 or come to the workshop July 9.
