8:30 am - 6:00 pm
Participants spend their mornings in workshops with Academy Staff and special guest teachers. In addition to acting, singing and dancing, past workshops have focused on audition techniques, makeup design and application, prop design, playwriting and improv, among others. These workshops flow into afternoon sessions, where student actors rehearse a full production intended for public performances, overseen by a creative team of industry professionals. Students learn to apply techniques taught in morning workshops towards their performance. Each session culminates with Friday and Saturday evening performances on the WPPAC stage. Running from June 29-July 25, this workshop is open to students grades 5-12. Before and after care is available!
Zombie Prom: Atomic Edition is a girl-loves-ghoul rock and roll Off Broadway musical set in the 1950s at Enrico Fermi High, where the law is laid down by a zany, tyrannical principal. Pretty senior Toffee has fallen for the class bad boy. Family pressure forces her to end the romance, and he charges off on his motorcycle to the nuclear waste dump. He returns glowing and determined to reclaim Toffee’s heart. He still wants to graduate, but most of all he wants to take Toffee to the prom. The principal orders him to drop dead while a scandal-seeking reporter seizes on him as the freak du jour. History come to his rescue while a tuneful selection of original songs in the style of 50’s hits keeps the action rocking across the stage.
