Hey everybody, this is Annika, Briana and Sophia. We are here to tell you about our production of Into the Woods Jr. directed by Dr. Shannon Sloan-Spice, and musically directed by Annie Denison. We are part of a summer theatre education program that is held at In Tandem Theatre from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Middle school and early high school kids participate in this three week experience.
We have many classes where we learn about the full theatre experience from acting to lighting to advertising, in which we learn about all the behind the scenes work as well as acting and singing. In addition to working with Shannon and Annie, so far we have had classes with In Tandem’s Production Manager, Colin Gawronski (lighting and set), In Tandem’s Managing Director, Jane Flieller (marketing and advertisement), and Laura Hughes (costumes).
In conclusion, this program has been a great learning experience and has helped us grow as actors/actresses. We are very grateful for this opportunity given to us and would like to thank everyone who made it possible. To give back to our community, we are providing a free show to 99 kids from The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Milwaukee.
We have three public performances coming up – for more information and to purchase tickets for the show just CLICK HERE! We really hope to see you there!
