Dramatic Academy offers seven weeks of full-day programming in Downtown Bangor

BANGOR - Registration is now open for Penobscot Theatre Company's Dramatic Academy Summer 2016. Young performers, technicians and theatre newbies are invited to help bring two sensational productions to life. "We are beyond thrilled to produce the hit musical that is currently rocking Broadway, Andrew Lloyd Webber's School of Rock,' based on the Paramount movie starring Jack Black!" said Director of Education Amy Roeder. "In addition, we have a tremendous new work, Transformer Tales: Stories of the Dawnland' which is being devised with members of the Penobscot Nation. This world premiere production will be produced as part of Acadia National Park's Centennial Celebration and will be performed on Indian Island, in Acadia National Park, and of course on our own historic Opera House stage. What an exceptional summer this is for Dramatic Academy!"

Session 1

School of Rock' (musical)

For ages: 4-18

Session dates: June 20 - July 15

Performance dates: July 14, 15, 16 and 17

'School of Rock' is the story of Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star. When Dewey poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school to earn a few bucks, he creates his own curriculum, turning his class into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind-blowing rock band. With a rockin' score (including the original songs from the film) and hilarious story, this musical will make your summer EPIC. May the spirit of rock be with you!

Session 2

Transformer Tales: Stories of the Dawnland'

For ages: 4-20

Session dates: July 25 Aug. 12

Wabanaki culture is alive onstage in this original piece conceived and devised by local Wabanaki artists, the People of the Dawnland. Experience a multimedia exploration of what it means to be of and from the Dawnland itself, incorporating cultural tales from the past with the vibrant life of the Wabanaki present and an eye to the future. Celebrate the earth, the skies, the rivers and the people of the Dawnland in these evocative tales told via poems, stories, music and Penobscot language. Conservation, preservation and passion come together to become Transformer Tales.

Both sessions offer Tech Track, a special course of study for young people aged 13 and up interested in work behind the scenes, including set design and construction, stage management, prop design and construction, costuming, lighting, and sound. Because production and performance go hand-in-hand, Tech Track participants will learn alongside their performing peers. Through Tech Track, students will get valuable hands-on training and play an integral role in producing School of Rock and Transformer Tales.

Faculty for Dramatic Academy Summer 2016 will include teaching artists Ben Layman, Christie Robinson, Phil and Tina Burns, Amy Roeder and other experts in the craft.

Classes will run Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. (lunch noon-1 p.m. optional) for students aged 4-6; and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. for students aged 7 and up. Tech Track will run daily Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students may be dropped off as early as 8:30 a.m.
