Carrie_9Back for our third summer OVATION THEATRE’S SUMMER TEEN INTENSIVE will be producing CARRIE THE MUSICAL Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel.  Our SUMMER THEATRE INTENSIVE program is audition based selecting students who excel in voice, acting and movement.

The intensive is an in-depth “process focused” rehearsal period. Unlike with large cast shows, we will be able to truly feature all performers while pushing them to strengthen their skills in all aspects of musical theatre. All students involved will spend time:

  • Creating three-dimensional characters
  • Acting and emoting their songs
  • Making songs an extension of dialogue
  • Learning the process of script analysis
  • Interpreting text and sub-text
  • Understanding complex emotions, objectives and situations

Our process will also include private workshops with some of DC and NYC leading actors including our very own Artistic Associate Dani Stoller and Choreograpger Lance Hayes who both were seen in the recent Helen Hayes nominated revival of CARRIE at Studio Theatre in Washington, DC.

This year our process will be structured in a two-week format (a handful of rehearsals in May) ending with the final performances at the JCC in Rockville.
