Summer MainStage at The Playgroup Theatre
Summer Mainstage actors enjoy an ever-changing roster of classes, including Acting, Musical Theatre, Dance, Yoga, Stage Combat, Shakespeare, Improv and more. The full six weeks allows a deeper exploration of the craft within these classes — and allows us to offer some unique classes that only our six-weekers take, such as sketch comedy, and some special one-time workshops.
The MainStage cast devotes three hours each day to rehearsal. Guided by their Director, Musical Director and Choreographer, the actors in the summer MainStage show are expected to approach each rehearsal as an opportunity to explore and experiment with the skills that they are learning in class, working towards nuanced and layered performances. A process-oriented environment pervades rehearsals, allowing a collaborative spirit to flourish among students and staff.
The Summer MainStage show will be staged in PGT’s 228 seat proscenium theatre. The MainStage show will be fully produced and designed, and, as with all PGT MainStage shows, chosen with an eye towards inspiring and challenging our students and audience. The MainStage title will be announced on the first day of camp.
