Performances

Our cabaret-style performances will address themes relevant to the last 18 months.  Musical numbers will be rehearsed in 10-person small ensembles that will combine into 20-person numbers during dress rehearsal as to create a sense of age-group cohesion.  RMRT performers will perform alongside campers in a few select numbers.  The kids’ performance will include a short story adapted for RMRT students by resident playwright & Education Director, Samantha Beach Kiley.  The teens’ performance will include an original short play also created by Samantha.

Safety precautions

By working primarily in small ensembles of 10 students, we will promote social distancing in most of our exercises. Masking requirements will follow County and State guidelines and rules established by instructors when sessions begin.  Our safety protocols include keeping the two morning and afternoon ensembles separate until the last two days of the program, when the groups will come together to rehearse the show.

The Youth Theatre Revival Kids program will:

  • -Promote teamwork & collaboration
  • -Exercise the imagination
