The purpose of this 8-week program in stagecraft is to give young artists a chance to work under the guidance of industry professionals, doing “whatever it takes” to get the show up and running. Students will have a chance to hone their skills as carpenters, painters, builders, stylists, tailors, audiophiles, special effects riggers, and anything else their interests may lead them. The students will work as a team and with designers and mentors to create all the elements for the four different stage productions that constitute Rubicon’s Summer Youth Program and that go into creating a memorable theatrical experience! If you love theatre but don’t want to be in the spotlight, this program is for YOU!
