The 5th VTE session hopes to produce this incredible historical piece with a full cast of talented teens ready to work as a collaborative team. Previous productions: FAME, Godspell, Les Miserables and Seussical the Musical.

Our session will consist of:

~ Full director-actor collaboration – teens will have the ability to collaborate in an ensemble piece that is guided by the adult staff and allows room for growth as actors throughout the entire process.
~ Process over Product – by producing this piece of theatre and telling this story, the actors will receive new points of view on theatrical techniques that can help further their career. By placing more emphasis on the rehearsal process, actors will be self-reflective on their journey
as actors.
~ Professional Environment – all actors will be treated and will be expected to follow professional guidelines through-out the rehearsal process.
~ Focus on Ensemble – under the direction of our adult staff, emphasis will be placed on the creation and execution of ensemble.
