Summer Stages is Theatre 3×60’s summer educational theatre program for youth 10 – 18 years and adults. This summer we are offering single week sessions in performance, production skills and playwriting, and a two week pre-professional performance intensive program. Participants work with trained professionals in all programs to have fun, and develop both theoretical and hands on skills. While we give participants the opportunity to present/display their achievements in a public forum at the end of each session, our focus is on process and personal growth in a supportive collaborative environment.

Come play with us and explore a variety of warm-up, rehearsal and performance techniques that come together on stage at the end of the week. Playing on Stage programs will be run by members of Theatre 3×60’s summer company and is suitable for new and experienced performers.
