SUMMER STOCK REGISTRATION: TUCK EVERLASTING
The Arts Express Summer Stock Program provides intermediate to advanced performers and technical theatre students ages 14-25 the opportunity to be a core cast or production team member of a full Broadway show. In this six-week immersive program, students hone solo and ensemble performance skills in the key disciplines of musical theatre including acting, voice, and dance through master classes, topic based workshops, and production rehearsal. Students interested in the technical side of theatre work with industry professionals to bring their designs to life while learning fundamentals of scenery, lighting, sound, costumes and props design.
Summer Stock - Actors
Summer Stock empowers aspiring young actors through a comprehensive program of master classes, professional audition and rehearsal processes and performance as a cast member in a fully produced Broadway show. Using a collaborative and interactive conservatory-style environment, Arts Express faculty teach practical skills that can be applied immediately to elevate performance levels in acting, voice and dance disciplines. Students develop confidence and technique, acquire insight and expertise, and learn to meet intellectual and artistic challenges.
Summer Stock – Tech
The Summer Stock Tech program places students side-by-side with Arts Express’ team of professional designers and technicians. Students build their portfolio through master classes and hands-on experiences in the various aspects of technical theatre including costumes, sets, props, sound and lighting. Tech students take on essential crew roles in the full produced Broadway show, gaining real-life skills in reading/comprehension (scripts, diagrams, etc.), mathematics (set construction, costume design, etc.), science (the physics of rigging flown set-pieces, the chemistry of fog machines, etc.) and history (researching the story background).
2019 SUMMER STOCK PRODUCTION: THE TUCSON PREMIER OF TUCK EVERLASTING
What would you do if you had all eternity? Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family does she get more than she could have imagined. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tuck’s unending youth, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: return to her life, or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey.
Based on best-selling children’s classic by Natalie Babbitt and adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, Tuck Everlasting features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.
