Announcing Virtual Summer Workshops 2020
Youth Theatre Carson City is thrilled to announce our upcoming Virtual Summer Workshop Series, held exclusively online over six weeks, June 16-July 23, 2020 as part of their YTCC@Home initiative. Youth Theatre Carson City is bringing local experts, home-grown successes, and industry professionals right into your living room covering topics from acting and singing to theatrical design and songwriting to building relationships and becoming a successful professional in the arts.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Youth Theatre Carson City, along with other local arts organizations, has been forced to cancel all of their in-person programming and live performances for the duration of the summer, leaving a void in many students’ summer plans. But Youth Theatre Carson City isn’t completely closing its metaphorical doors. “Theatre is always changing and adapting to the times. This is no different,” commented Andie Wilkerson, Artistic Director of Youth Theatre Carson City. “Just because we can’t meet in person right now doesn’t mean we can’t experience the art and magic of theatre through other means. Our creative team has been working hard to create the best quality performing arts education and performance opportunities for our students and families that we can in these unprecedented times."
For younger children entering grades K-5, YTCC is offering 45-minute workshops and master classes in Creative Drama, Movement/Dance, Clowning and Improv. For teens and tweens entering grades 6-12, there is a full line-up of one hour workshops and master classes on a wide range of topics including Voice, Playwriting, Songwriting, Auditions, Design, Comedy, and more.
And workshops are just the beginning. Youth Theatre Carson City is working on a host of exciting online activities, performances, and more through our YTCC@Home platform to keep our active youth theatre community engaged during the Covid-19 closures and beyond. “We hope to encourage our community to keep playing, keep creating, and keep connecting during these difficult times. We’re all in this together, and together we will come back stronger than before.”
