OLT’S AMAZING 2022 SUMMER YOUTH THEATRE PROGRAM!!!

Registration for OLT's Amazing 2022 Summer Youth Theatre Program is now open! This summer we will be offering 3 two-week, in-person sessions of Musical Theatre Bootcamp, offering 2 separate performance experiences to be a part of, so if you love to perform, you can sign up for two sessions and have a different experience each time!! Your chance to get up on stage, and sing and dance yourself crazy! Alternatively, discover more about theatre technical production and learn to operate lighting and sound boards or become a stage manager!! Whatever you choose, your fabulous music theatre production (the titles of which we’re keeping secret for now!), with costumes, sets and lighting will be performed on the big stage at Oshawa Little Theatre on the last day of your fabulous program!

MUSICAL THEATRE BOOTCAMP: (AGES 7 AND UP)

Love to act? Love to sing? Love to dance? Just wanna hang out at a theatre all day with other theatre kids? If so, then this awesomely fun two-week hands- on educational experience is for you! From 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday, you will participate in daily physical and vocal warm-ups, followed by classes in acting, singing, and dancing, all leading to a final musical production on the last day of the two-week program! Throughout the two weeks, you will have the opportunity to work with Directors, who will help you to develop performance essentials like audition skills, character development, and how to speak your lines clearly and directly; Musical Directors, who will guide you in developing your singing: breath, voice projection and tone; and Choreographers who will work with you on dance skills, posture, how to move onstage, and how best to learn choreo and love it! Our dynamic instructors also focus on essential life skills such as public speaking, responsibility, commitment, confidence and teamwork. In addition, every participant will have the opportunity to have their headshot taken by a professional photographer at no additional cost. This headshot will be distributed by email for the participants’ use in auditions. There will be opportunities for kids interested in backstage theatre roles to learn about and to participate in what goes on backstage as well. Interested participants will learn about and have the opportunity to be involved in behind-the-scenes jobs such as hair, make-up, stage management, set design/construction, costuming, lighting, and/or sound. This awesome educational summer program is perfect for any youth aspiring to join an Oshawa Little Theatre full production including our famous Youth Group!
