SUMMER STAGES 2021
Brundage Park Playhouse proudly announces its 40th season of Summer Stages, a workshop for young performers ages 8–14. All students must have completed 2nd grade or higher during the 2020/2021 school year. Our qualified staff will instruct students in acting, music, and dance. Students will also gain performance experience through participation in a different production each session. We offer four two-week sessions. Each session can accommodate a maximum of 2 groups, with approximately 20 students in each group. This camp takes place at Brundage Park on Carrell Road. Students entering 7th grade or above in the 2021/2022 school year are eligible for our Advanced Performers Workshop as well. However, students must audition for that camp. Please call us at (973) 989-7092 for more information.
What to Expect During Sessions at BPP’s Summer Stages
At the beginning of each session, students will be divided into groups where they will learn a song and simple movement, which will then be used to “audition” for the directors. After auditions, each student will then be assigned a role and placed in a cast. Students will participate in acting, music, and dance workshops during one part of the day with the other half of the day dedicated to rehearsals for the show. Friday mornings of performance days, dress rehearsals will take place using costumes and props. Each group will have the opportunity to rehearse on the BPP stage.
What theatrical performance experience would be complete without an audience? At the end of each two-week session we present a production for an audience of parents, relatives and friends. Performances will be held in the theatre each session’s final Friday afternoon at 1:00* or 2:00*, depending on the particular group’s assigned time. Admission is free for these performances.
* Times may be adjusted depending on needs.
Our staff is comprised of dedicated and talented individuals who have studied the arts and whose skill sets qualify them to provide our students with a comprehensive learning experience. Their impressive resumes include all aspects of performance, with particular emphasis on dance, acting and music. As a result of our staff’s efforts, many of our students have gone on to perform in professional arenas.
Sessions will run on the following dates:
Session 1: June 21– July 2
Session 2: July 6 – July 16 (No class 7/5)
Session 3: July 19 –July 30
Session 4: August 2– August 13
Please try to schedule any personal appointments after camp time.
We cannot guarantee that friends will be in the same group. Request must be submitted upon registration with email to firstname.lastname@example.org. No requests after 6/15.
