Young actors to produce a play-in-a-weekPublished 5:15pm Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Young actors, ages 8-12 years old, will have an opportunity this summer to learn the basics of play production from casting the actors to striking the set. Summer Theater Camp is offered by Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) and Tryon Little Theater (TLT) from July 29 – Aug. 3. This camp is separate from the summer youth production being produced by TLT. Sessions will be held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., leading up to a full performance on Saturday at 10 a.m. Students will meet at Sunnydale Monday through Thursday and at TFAC on Friday and Saturday. The performance will be a full-on production of a 25-minute script, directed by Marianne Carruth, produced by Sara Seagle, with sets, props and costumes by Lynn Costine.
Carruth, Seagle, and Costine will receive assistance from members of the community.
“We’re very fortunate to have this level of involvement from adults in the community, as well as high school and college students I’ve worked with previously, to help make this a fun, educational experience,” said Carruth.
Only 20 students will be accepted. Registration through Tryon Fine Arts Center is currently underway. There is a fee for enrollment. For more information or to register, call Marianne Carruth at 828-859-8322, ext. 213 or visit www.tryonarts.org.
