School may be out for the summer, but the students of Grand Rapids Civic Theatre’s School of Theatre Arts are still hard at work breathing new life into a literary classic and a rock n’ roll adaptation.

Civic Theatre close out their 2017/18 season with the classic Little Women, alternating with School of Rock, presented by the theatre’s Summer Repertory Theatre Intensive (SRTI). Performances run from July 27 – August 5!

The SRTI program allows young creatives, ages 13-19, the chance to craft, produce, and perform in a main stage production, coached by theatre professionals. Students are given the opportunity to learn the art of performance through specialized dancing, singing, and acting classes. Those with an interest in the technical aspect of theatre are participating in hands on classes in set and costume design, lights and sound, and backstage crewing. Multiple weeks of work culminate in a showcase of stunning proportions, and this year’s lineup is guaranteed to be fantastic.
