Dreamcatcher’s Summer Theatre Program For Teens and Tweens: 'Dreamcatcher Junior' Begins Enrollment

Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre, professional Theatre in Residence at the Oakes Center in Summit, will hold its Summer Theatre Program: Dreamcatcher Junior for students aged 10 to 17 from July 11 through July 29, 2016.  Dreamcatcher’s Summer Theatre Conservatory has been redesigned for the summer of 2016 as a three-week theatre experience

We have combined the best of our conservatory, where students build skills and study with theatre professionals in a variety of subjects, with our beloved Dreamcatcher Junior program, where the students create and perform their own play. 

The program will be held Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 pm (with a special performance July 29 at 7:00 pm) at Dreamcatcher’s home at the Oakes Center, 120 Morris Avenue in Summit.

In Dreamcatcher Junior, we believe in having fun while developing real skills under the guidance of professionals. DRT JR is an enjoyable way for students aged 10 to 17 to explore their interest in the performing arts during their summer vacation. Students receive individual attention, constructive feedback, and the support needed to achieve their personal goals.

In the first week, the ensemble begins to come together through classes and workshops in acting, improv, playwriting, singing and movement. These and other skills will be explored as the group builds the foundation for their creative process.

The second week focuses on the development and writing of an original play, which will also include music and movement. Students have the opportunity to shape their own characters and performances, which might include new subjects explored in the first week such as stage combat and physical comedy.

In the third week, the cast and their director, musical director and choreographer hone and refine their original work in preparation for its presentation on the final evening of the program.

The cost of the Summer Theatre Program: Dreamcatcher Junior is $750 for all three weeks, with limited scholarships available.  Discounts are provided for those who register before April 15.  Admission is on a first come, first served basis until the program is filled or until the deadline of June 1, and applications for the Summer Theatre Program: Dreamcatcher Junior and more information on the program may be obtained by calling Dreamcatcher’s business office at908-514-9654, emailing or may be downloaded at
