Luna Stage today announced a partnership with Diversity Youth Theater to offer a summer theatre camp for young artists ages 7-13 and 14-23.
The program begins on June 18 and runs Mondays to Fridays, 8:30am-3:30pm, through August 4th. For audition dates and times, registration information and program costs, visit the Diversity Youth Theater website at www.diversityyouththeater.com or call 862-224-4188.
The Luna Stage/Diversity Youth Theater summer program is ideal for young performers from New Jersey and New York who want to be involved in the performing arts world. Each participant is given a first hand experience in music, movement and acting in a fun and non-competitive program. Young performers are encouraged to embrace their own unique creative identity while forming new and long-lasting friendships.
In the Luna Stage/Diversity Youth Theater summer program, each participant contributes to creating an original theater project. Over the course of the six or seven-week session, performers will learn scriptwriting, songwriting, improvisation and choreography. During the last week of the program, all students will perform their original musical theatre project on a professional stage for the general public.
Luna Stage is a professional theatre and a proud member of The Valley Arts District in West Orange and Orange. In addition to producing critically acclaimed works for the stage and a growing Jazz and Comedy Series, the theatre is committed to education and community outreach and family programming. It is in this spirit that the company decided to partner with the dynamic theatre education group, Diversity Youth Theater.
Diversity Youth Theater has been offering young artists from New Jersey and New York a creative home for over 7 years. The goal of the company is to bring together young artists of varying backgrounds and guide them through a process of artistic collaboration that leads to the creation and presentation of purpose driven theatre, music and dance projects. The Diversity Youth Theater arts leadership team is comprised of professional performers that train new talent. With a strong commitment to social advocacy and community upliftment, Diversity Youth Theater nurtures new artists to develop a moral fiber that will carry forth into their art and their lives.
All auditions, classes and performances will be held at Luna Stage 555 Valley Road, West Orange, NJ 07052. 973-395-5551. www.lunastage.org
