WESTON, Vt. – Weston Theater Company announces open registration for “TheaterLab,” an immersive technical theater experience for students ages 12–18. Under the instruction of top industry professionals, participants receive an up-close look at creating live theater through backstage tours, tech rehearsals, actor/director talkbacks, and more – they also will attend all of Weston’s summer productions together and meet most Sunday afternoons and an occasional weekday evening between June and August.
Says Director of Education and Engagement, Susan Haefner, “Weston Theater Company is thrilled to offer TheaterLab in person for the first time in two years. I’m so excited to give students an opportunity to experience theater in this unique way.”
Tuition includes: one ticket to all four shows of summer season, one additional ticket per student per production, participation in post-show talks, workshops, and more, and the opportunity to meet other students who share a passion for theater.
Participants should be able to attend at least two of the Sunday matinee performances, workshops, and talkbacks, which will last from approximately 1:30 – 6:30 p.m., and will be expected to share their experiences through conversation, content creation, and social media during the season and when they return to school.
