Here's where to send New West kids who just have to be onstage

Is there a young performer in your house who’s just meant to be onstage?

The Vagabond Players are launching a new youth theatre program this spring, and 11- to 13-year-olds are invited to sign up now. The program will run from May to July, culminating in performances on July 17 and 18.

Young participants will experience workshops at Bernie Legge Theatre, presented by trained youth theatre program leaders. They’ll take part in improv games, learn about all aspects of performance – auditions, acting, stage dance and fighting – and get their hands on backstage tasks such as set design and construction, decorating, costume design, and sound and lighting design.

Workshops will run Saturdays from May 4 to June 22, running 1 to 4 p.m. daily. Through July, program hours will increase to include production rehearsals – students will be taking part from Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

The final shows will run on Wednesday, July 17 and Thursday, July 18 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The program will cost $250 for more than 96 program hours.
