Inspired by the true events surrounding the 1913 murder trial of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia who is wrongly convicted of the murder of 13-year old Mary Phagan, Parade is filled with soaring music and a heart-wrenching story, offering a moral lesson about the dangers of prejudice and ignorance that should not be forgotten. Amid religious intolerance, political injustice and racial tension, the stirring Tony Award-winning Parade explores the endurance of love and hope.
ADDISON, TX – WaterTower Theatre Artistic Director Joanie Schultz, and Managing Director Greg Patterson today announced details of the 2017 Summer Performing Arts Conservatory. In past years, the Conservatory for children and teens, held at the Addison Theatre Centre, was structured for students to present a fully-realized performance of a published play or musical at the end of the two-week program. In the new restructured two-week Conservatory, students will be cultivating their skills in three intensive courses, each led by a different professional theatre artist. This training will offer a more well-rounded experience, and will provide the students with a strong artistic foundation that can be used in the classroom or on the professional stage. The students will also gain valuable interpersonal communication skills that will benefit their day-to-day lives. The Conservatory will culminate in a performance showcase for friends and family focused on utilizing the skills and crafts learned over the two-week program.
Conservatory enrollment is now open. The cost is $500 per student (tuition assistance and scholarships are available). For more information or to enroll contact Kyle Eric Bradford, Patron Services & Community Engagement Manager, at 972.450.6228, email@example.com or visit www.watertowertheatre.org/education_programs.aspx.
The 2017 Summer Performing Arts Conservatory introduces children 8-16 years old to others who share their love of acting, singing, and dancing! The two-week Conservatory offers a unique, non-competitive, nurturing program that caters to students who want to immerse themselves in all aspects of theatre arts.
The Conservatory is made possible, in part, through the support of The Town of Addison, The Civic League and The Texas Commission on the Arts.
