We are excited to offer a number of events this year that celebrate and support the arts.
Black History (Completed)
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 11
BHS High School
We had a very successful event. We were a GOLD sponsor of this wonderful event.
Theater Arts Workshop
This two week intensive workshop provides students, grade 7 -12, an introduction to various aspects of a theatrical production. Primarily designed for those with little or no previous theater experience, this workshop will explore the fundamentals of stage performance through active participation with theater professionals. Topics covered will include auditioning, vocal techniques, improvisational skills, choreography, cast etiquette, costumes, make-up, stage craft and stage tech. Classes will be held at the Fountaindale Library. The session will conclude with a student run showcase performance on Friday, June 16 at 4:30 pm.
The Bolingbrook Arts Council is providing funding for this experience, but enrollment is limited. Selection will be based upon the student’s response to the question: “Why is attending the Theater Arts Workshop important to you?” included on the application link, and if necessary, a brief interview will be granted. Those accepted will be notified by May 29.
