Aloha Performing Arts Company will offer a six-day theater workshop for 8-12-year-olds at the Aloha Theatre July 16-17, 22-25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. The theme of the workshop is friendship.
On the final day, Thursday, July 25, there will be a free public showing at 3:30 p.m. of the production which will be developed in six days: “The Good Ship Friendship,” a play featuring jokes, poems, stories, fables, songs and dances, all exploring the many aspects of friendship.
Students will be encouraged to contribute personal anecdotes to the show as well. Tuition is $175, and a limited number of scholarships is available.
Primary instructor will be APAC artistic director Jerry Tracy, and choreographer will be Nora Frank. Other members of Aloha Teen Theatre will be assisting as well. Every student who signs up is guaranteed a role.
Participants will receive 30 hours of instruction, and in addition to performing, will assist with technical preparations for the show. All materials necessary for the workshop will be provided, as well as an afternoon snack. Students should bring a lunch each day, and wear closed shoes and modest clothing. Enrollment is limited, so early signup is recommended, by calling Suzanne at the APAC office at 322-9924.
