Student Theatre Guild
Theatre Charlotte's Student Theatre Guild provides an outstanding theatre opportunity to high school and college students selected through an audition process. The summer intensive provides a professional-level summer stock experience. The group rehearses for 9 days in July and then presents 7 performances of a major Broadway musical over 2 weekends on the Theatre Charlotte stage. If selected through the audition process, there is no fee to participate. Past productions include SWEENEY TODD, CABARET, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, SWEET CHARITY, HAIRSPRAY and THE DROWSY CHAPERONE. The 2017 production will be CRY-BABY!
For 3 weeks in the summer, more than 30 TCjr participants, age 9-14, work with professional directors, choreographers, designers, technicians and performers experiencing and creating musical theatre. In addition to these professionals, college students studying the performing arts, along with exceptional high school students, will work alongside these young people, sharing their knowledge and experience, rehearsing and performing a professional-level summer stock production to be presented on the Theatre Charlotte stage. Recent TCjr presentations of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST JR, PETER PAN JR, Roald Dahl's WILLY WONKA JR, THE WIZARD OF OZ and ALICE IN WONDERLAND JR were all smash hits! The 2017 summer production will be Disney's THE LION KING JR!
