INVASION USA – CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE FIFTH KIND
Picture this: you return from an extended work trip to find some other life form living in your house, eating your food, and you still can’t get a straight answer about what happened to your cat. This and other stories may find their way into iTheatre Saratoga’s 2021 Youth Theatre Workshop, INVASION USA: CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE FIFTH KIND. Now back to the problem at hand: what if the last time you were home was some 15,000 years ago, local time, and those pesky intruders have gone ahead and named the place “America?”
The performance project for 8-16 year olds sets out to explore a variety of social issues affecting our youth, push the boundaries of theatre, and incorporate the insights of iTheatre’s young collaborators. Starting August 23 with a week of playwriting and improvisation, the second week will focus on rehearsals culminating with a showcase featuring the workshop participants.
A nominal enrollment fee of $400 is charged per/student for the two-week program, with limited scholarships and reduced rates for households with multiple children available. Slots available for one or two weeks. All classes and performances are set to take place in Saratoga Springs, NY.
REHEARSALS: MON – FRI 10:30am – 3:30pm from AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 3
STUDENT SHOWCASE: SEPTEMBER 3 at 5:30pm
