Theater Pie Workshops present for Summer 2012 Summer Pie Theater Play House.
I am excited about our Play House and anxious to let people know that it is happening with Registration Open now. This is the first year for our Summer Pie Play House. But many of us have been together many times and many ways in workshops and camps for many years. We did not meet last year which makes this opening even happier.
Our Play House will reunite old friends and bring in new in a whimsical summer setting where the Unitarian-Universalist Society of Rockport shares their in-Spirited Church with us to be a Play House of our own. The charming and welcoming UU makes a wonderfully imaginative little theater.
The Play House leaders called Coaches will be familiar to many who have been with us in other camps and programs. The Coaches are also looking for kid-companion jobs in the afternoons after Play House. I have their contact info.
The Play House operates from 9:00 am-12:15, M-Th, and until 2:00 on Friday. Every Friday a Show is presented for one and all. Every week is different so a participant may register for one or more weeks. The participants are called The Artists. Our volunteers are called Cheerleaders. I am the Head Coach, The WALRUS.
The fee per week per player is $100.
There is a minimun registration requirement of 10. The Play House is full with 24 registered.
The Summer Pie Play House opens the week of June 25. We are closed July 4 week. The Play House is then open for five consecutive weeks July 9, 16, 23, 30, August 6.

*Players entering Grade 7 will work in the small groups as peer leaders. They will also have some time, in a group together, to plan a special act for the Show.
Each small group will have a Coach, (Jr/Sr. in HS, or College Arts Student), and a Cheerleader, (a volunteer Arts Student entering grades 8-10), and possibly a 7th. Grade Peer Leader)
Figment Coaches will take Players for special work as it is imagined and invented in creating a song, dance, scene, or poem. So within the small groups, there are even further possibilities, as the Spirit Leads for creating.
