A two-week program lead by Jene Rebbin Shaw, the Summer Stock KIDS camp teaches children how to develop many aspects of a play, including sets, costumes and props, all with the help of K12 Gallery for Young People. Campers rehearse daily, preparing for a performance in front of family and friends. This summer, the children will be performing The Adventures of Rose Red (SnowWhite’s Less-Famous Sister) by Sean Abley.
Camp dates are Mondays through Fridays, June 8 – 19 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Performances of The Adventures of Rose Red are Saturday, June 20 at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Daily classes and performances are held at The Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center at 116 North Jefferson Street in downtown Dayton. The Early Bird fee for Summer Stock KIDS is $395.00 per student if paid by May 15, and $425.00 after May 15.
About The Adventures of Rose Red (Snow White’s Less-Famous Sister)
Cinderella, Jack, Snow White, Prince Charming and Goldilocks all go into the woods to see their happy endings. But what happens next? How does fame and fortune get in the way of simple happiness? Many of your favorite characters find their stories tangled together as they try to find ways to celebrate their fame, but strive to live a “normal life.” Speaking of fame, what about Rose Red, Snow White’s less-famous sister? Rose has just turned 13 and is wondering what kind of life she will lead in the shadow of her well-known sister. This modern day fairy tale—complete with trendy teenage dialogue and I-Mirrors instead of I-Phones (And, oh! The spiders and frogs!)—explores the true meaning of “happily ever after.”
