Students ages 12 – 17 are invited to audition for a summer musical theater workshop on June 4th at 11:00 a.m. We are looking for “triple threat performers” who can sing, act and dance. Only a limited number of performers will be accepted into the program. During the two-week camp, students will put together an intense Broadway-style musical revue and perform it for the community.
Once the summer workshop is over, performers automatically become a part of “Headliners,” the official performance ambassadors of San Pedro Playhouse. “Headliners” will go into the community to help spread the word about San Pedro Playhouse and its wonderful upcoming 2011-2012 Season.
Entrance into the program is by audition only. Audition date – June 4 at 11 am
