MICHIGAN CITY — The Footlight Players of Michigan City will offer a youth theatrical workshop, free of charge, to the first 30 applicants from the ages of 6-17.
The organization is able to offer this program to the community because of a financial grant awarded from the Michigan City Community Enrichment Corp. The workshop will consist of two weeks, Monday through Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m. The participants will receive vocal/musical instruction, stage direction, character development, choreography and interpretation of a script. The sessions will culminate in a two act musical farce, titled "The Wizard of Odds."
The sessions will be held on June 10, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 19 and 20. There will also be a dress rehearsal on June 21 (time to be determined later) and production dates will be June 22 at 7:30 p.m. and June 23 at 2 p.m.
The performances will be open to the public and ticket prices will be $15 with a $10 price for children 12 and under. The sessions and performances will take place at The Footlight Theater,1705 Franklin St., Michigan City.
The instructors for this workshop are returning Playwright/Director Robert Komendera and Vocal/Musical Director Lee Meyer. Three new-faces for this year are Choreographer Denise Barkow and Assistant Directors Debbie Bartholomew and Janice Rice.
