Temple Theatre announces its Summer Youth Conservatories

Temple Theatre is excited to announce their 2010 Summer Youth Conservatories.  This year, Temple Theatre will be producing Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book as the summer conservatory.  This youth education effort offers room for 76 local youth to participate in (2) three-week ‘camps’ (38 youth per conservatory; ages 8 to 18) where they learn the history of theatre, acting, auditioning, voice, movement, technical theatre and more.  These youth are instructed by theatre professionals such as Peggy Taphorn, Temple’s Producing Artistic Director, who spent 20 years based in NYC as an award-winning actress, director and choreographer, and Tom Dalton, Temple Theatre’s Director of Education, who holds a BFA and MFA in performance.  Each conservatory culminates in a weekend of shows.

Last year both conservatories filled up on Registration Day which is scheduled for this Wednesday, April 21, 2010, in the theatre lobby.  Registration will start at 10:00 am.  Enrollment is $300/child.
