2014 Gamut Theatre Summer Academy (GTSA)

Silly Pose

Ages 7-9 and 10-15

Students laugh and learn as they participate in age-appropriate activities and instruction, and rehearse and perform their own play in a safe and fun environment. GTSA is a summer theatre intensive for students ages 7-9 and 10-15. Students are immersed in the study of Theatre, Dance, Voice, Improvisation, Writing, and Stage Combat. Our accredited teaching staff is comprised of caring, creative, and highly talented teachers and professionals who specialize in working with children/youth and have a background in the arts.

No experience necessary. Each intensive takes place over one week and culminates in a Friday night production starring the students. A student can participate in one, two, three or all four weeks!
