Black Box Studios Runs Summer Teen Theater Program

Rock Musical Theater Intensive, Black Box Studios’ popular summer program for teens with a serious interest in the performing arts, will run this summer for its ninth season from Monday, July 2, until Sunday, August 12, weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students aged 13-19 spend a month working on a Broadway-style musical that culminates in a fully-staged production for family, friends, the community and industry professionals. Auditions start at the end of this month, on a first come, first served basis!

In this collaborative theater experience created and run by BBS/BBPAC Artistic Director Matt Okin, participants receive hands-on instruction in acting, improvisation, voice, dance, stage combat, audition technique and more. This year’s most likely production will be “Rent” (School Edition). (Note: Some material may be considered sophisticated, and content warnings for audiences are displayed on all performance publicity materials whenever deemed necessary by the artistic director.)

Those students who are interested in what goes on behind the scenes—set design, lighting, costume design, special effects, stage management etc.—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 those under 13 and over 19, exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.
