Summer Theater is Exciting at Grand Rapids Civic Theatre
Summer Repertory Theatre is a program of the School of Theatre Arts. The program offers students, ages 14 to 19, a hands-on theatre experience supported under the direction of Grand Rapids Civic Theatre professionals and volunteers. Students hone their performances skills: singing, acting, and dancing while they also learn the more technical aspects of theater including set design, costume design, marketing, backstage work, sound and lights, and tickets selling.
Originally Junior Summer Stock in 1994, it consisted of one show performed by two separate casts.
Because of increased popularity from auditioning students and general public demand for performances, the program was redesigned and launched as Summer Repertory Theatre in 2004. Each season, the theater selects a musical and non-musical for students to produce. The quality of the productions has been growing since.
Ticket prices are $10 to $16.
