Rock Musical Theater Intensive (RTMI), Black Box Studios’s popular summer program for teens with a serious interest in the performing arts, will run for its ninth season from Monday, July 2, until Sunday, August 12, weekdays from 9:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m.
In this collaborative theater experience created and run by BBS/BBPAC Artistic Director Matt Okin, students aged 13-19 receive hands-on instruction in acting, improvisation, voice, dance and more. Participants rehearse and produce a full-length production for family and friends. Roles are chosen specifically for each participant to showcase his or her talents. This year’s production will be “Rent” (school edition).
Students interested in behind-the-scenes action are also encouraged to join. Black Box also seeks one student director (a 12th-grade graduate) and, sometimes, one older student stage manager for the program. To apply, contact [email protected].
RMTI is limited to the first 25 performers; other slots are available for behind-the-scenes participants. For further information about RMTI, Black Box Studios and Black Box PAC, please visit www.blackboxpac.com, call 201-357-2221 or email [email protected].
