ACT Summer Day Program 2018

This summer, we are offering 4 two-week sessions of fun and exciting theatrical and musical adventures. Each session, we will rehearse scene and song selections from a classic musical and perform them on the final Friday evening at 4PM. Classes in movement, voice, acting and theatre games will fill out each day. We will be performing two different shows this year: Shrek, Jr during sessions I & II and Beauty and the Beast, Jr during sessions III & IV.

The summer day program will be at Arlington Children's Theatre, 115 Massachusetts Avenue.

As always, you may register for multiple sessions and will have a fresh, new experience each time!

About the Shows:

Shrek, Jr: Once upon a time, in a far away swamp, there lived an ogre named Shrek. One day, Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits who have been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wisecracking donkey to confront Farquaad, he's handed a task – if he rescues feisty princess Fiona, his swamp will be righted. Shrek tries to win Fiona’s love and vanquish Lord Farquaad, but a fairytale wouldn't be complete without a few twists and turns along the way.

Beauty and the Beast, Jr: The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
