Theatre Program for Teens with REV Theatre Company from May to June, 2021
The Friends of Laurel Hill and West Laurel Cemeteries are partnering with New York and Philadelphia-based REV Theatre Company for an 8 week/16 session after-school program for middle and high school students that will take place in May and June.
Students will explore the story of Romeo & Juliet, Shakespeare’s timeless and universal play about love, hate, prejudice, and civil war. The acting workshops and rehearsals will explore the rehearsal process, projection, random improvisation, and role-playing culminating in a contemporary, vibrant and visceral performance, presented free of charge to the community. Laurel Hill Cemetery’s gravestones and mausoleums will provide the setting for this exciting and physically dynamic production. Supported by The John B. Rosenthal Foundation, Shakespeare in the Cemetery is open to middle and high school students.
There are a limited number of scholarships available. Space is limited, and registration is required.
For more information about scholarships and this program, please email email@example.com or call 215-228-2800 ext. 100 by April 2, 2021, at 5:00 pm.
“It is easy to understand why no other company is capable of reinventing Shakespeare like REV…REV Theatre Company offers a Shakespeare for our time, bringing the plays up to date in the 21st century”.
“Take a look at what really talented theater people can do”. “William would be proud”.
