SUGAR GROVE – Registration is now open for the Fox Country Players' Theatre Arts Academy.
The two-week, performing arts academy takes place July 8– July 19 at the Waubonsee Community College Auditorium (Sugar Grove campus) as part of Waubonsee’s summer YEP! program. Class times are Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - noon. There will be two performances on July 19 and July 20 at 7 p.m.
The academy is open to students between the ages of 6 and 14. This year's theme is “The Greatest Show”.
According to a news release, students will develop their skills in acting, singing, dancing, and art in a positive and fun environment. Students are grouped by age and each group will rehearse a short stage production complete with choreographed musical numbers. The experience culminates in two final performances on the Waubonsee Auditorium stage.
High school and college students can get in on the act as mentors. Mentors assist the younger students in the mornings and then participate in workshop-style rehearsals in the afternoons to prepare their part in “The Greatest Show” performances.
