Together, the students and staff transform stories into imaginative performances.

This summer’s theme is…

Are you feeling fiery fierce or maybe marvelously magical?
Would you like to playfully pretend you’re particularly powerful?

Play a part in HTY’s 2022 Summer Drama Adventure to explore your wild side (and even sprout a pair of wings!).  Together, we will PLAY WITH age-old stories, IMAGINE compelling characters, CREATE costumes, dialog and action, BECOME creative collaborators, and PERFORM on HTY’s own stage! 

Join the fun as we bring Fabulous Folktales to imaginative life! 


For Children ages 10-13

… Is all about YOU.
Develop your acting skills.
Learn how to create exciting theatre.
Take dreamatic risks full of creativity and fun.
The ‘Tween Scene is what you wish it to be.

This summer’s theme is…

How much do you like to laugh?
Just how funny can you be?
What kind of comic strip character might you love to be?

Come join the Comic Strip fun with HTY’s 2022 ‘Tween Scene! This summer, we will jump from the comic strip frame and bring those fantastic stories to life. The characters, the action, the hilarious one-liners will be your creative springboard as you imagine and perform your own versions of comic strip tales.

Don’t miss this chance to share your funny bone.

Each drama day will be divided into two parts:

Whole group activities for skill building
Activities that build body and voice expression as well as performative skills. We will play improvisational games and explore how to use space. All you need bring is a willingness to try new things, step out of your comfort zone sometimes and take creative risks. Be ready to work with new friends and to share and embrace ideas.

Scene groups – We will take scene groups through a guided process

Small Group Story Building
Small teams will work together on creating story scenes using the skills they’ve been developing.

Imagining the story. The team members will create action and blocking and even write their own dialog!

The summer will culminate in a performance where each group performs their own scene to help tell the story. The heart of the program is on the creative process and creativity building.
