THE NEXT BIG THING
The DramaWorks PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP
It's everything you've come to love from DramaWorks' Camps and Workshops but this time even bigger and better than before. Students will have the opportunity to step up their game and perform in a full musical along side their peers in this 9 week performance intensive.
With 21 featured roles and a solo for each of our 11 ensemble members, every student has the opportunity to find their voice on stage. Building on the skill sets we have learned through our educational workshops, students will put their knowledge, talents and love for the theater to the test as they perform the family favorite, The Music Man Jr., for family and friends.
As with all of our workshop programs, our aim is to teach your students the important and necessary skills to succeed on stage. This workshop gives them the applicational opportunities to test their knowledge, grow their passion and shine in their favorite sport.
Who can participate?
The DramaWorks Performance Workshop is for advanced performance students in 5th -8th grade. Prior participation in one of the many DramaWorks programs is recommended but not required.
Do we have to audition?
All Students are required to audition following registration. Students will be cast based on ability and given a script. They will be expected to attend their first rehearsal fully memorized!
How long do we Rehearse?
The DramaWorks Performance workshop runs for 9 weeks. Students will rehearse once weekly for 2.5 hours, with one additional rehearsal during performance week.
Will every student be featured?
YES! This workshop is still a learning based experience and will give every student the opportunity for featured time on stage. Whether a leading role or a part of our ensemble, every student will have a speaking role or solo during the show.
Will there be performances?
YES! The students will have the opportunity to perform for an audience two times!. Costumes, set, and props will be minimal, in order to highlight the strengths of each cast member and the educational experience of the workshop.
As a successful Voice Over artist and performer, Julie loves nothing more than working with our students on creating character, building their confidence and teaching them the skills and tools needed to shine on the stage. Her work with our actors goes far beyond singing on the stage, teaching them valuable skills (like a perfect handshake) that will stick with them forever!

Intensive and content heavy rehearsals will provide the tools for our students to give a successful performance in only 9 weeks.

Students will audition with a monologue and song of their choice. Callbacks may be needed to best place students in a role.
Memorization is a significant part of the production workshop program. Students will be given a script at auditions and will be expected to memorize their lines ahead of the first rehearsal, just like a broadway production!
Our two performances will focus solely on content (rather than costumes and set pieces) and will be free for audience members. Each student/family will receive an equal amount of tickets to share with their families and friends. All performances will take place in the gym at Providence Presbyterian Church.
