OVATION THEATRE’S MUSICAL THEATRE BLACK BOX INTENSIVE:
For High School and College Students
After an outstanding production of RENT: School Edition last summer we are excited to announce the return of our MUSICAL THEATRE BLACK BOX INTENSIVE in which we are planning to mount a production of the wildly hilarious and campy HEATHERS: THE MUSICAL based on the 1988 cult film Heathers. The show, while a comedy, deals with issues of teen suicide, bullying, homophobia, and gun violence. Our program will feature an intimate cast of 20 area high school and college students. The final week of the program will culminate in a black box style performance. The program is audition based selecting students who excel in voice, acting and movement.
The intensive will be 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:
