I am so excited to introduce you to the Yellowstone Theatre Project. With a Winter Workshop under our belt and Spring Break and Summer Camps on the way, we are taking 2019 by storm!
The Project provides educational opportunities focused on theatre arts for 3rd-12th graders in the Bozeman area. The Winter Workshop focused on performance and answering the question, “What does an actor do?” Our upcoming Spring Break Camp will feature a series of short plays, some written by the students themselves.
We’re excited to offer experience as performers, writers, directors, and stage managers during this five-day session. Summer Camp for 3rd-6th graders will focus on learning the ropes of acting and storytelling through classic children’s literature, while 7th-12th graders dive into the world of Shakespeare.
We are proud to provide process-based, student-led exploration of theatre for young artists. Our goal is to foster an environment where students grow through imaginative play, challenge themselves, and support each other through ensemble work. We trust they will take their ability to create, communicate, and nurture out of the theatre classroom and into their lives.
Thank you for your support of the Yellowstone Theatre Project and we hope you can join us sometime for a student showcase.
