If you are a mom of a high school student who has an interest in drama, this one is for you. Marist College is offering scholarships for their Theater Summer Pre-College program.
This course offers high school students the opportunity to “test-drive” a college theatre course while living on campus for two weeks. Upon successful completion of the Summer Theatre Institute, each student earns three transferrable college credits for the Marist course ENG 150 Introduction to Theatre.
Check out this video done by the Director of the program for a sneak peak of what your child can expect:
The program also includes seeing live theatre, both locally and with a trip to Broadway with a backstage tour (last summer’s Theatre Institute toured “The Book of Mormon” and had a private talk-back with the cast of “Jersey Boys”.) Best of all, they keep the program small so that the student’s experience is an intimate and rewarding one.
Space and scholarships are limited. If you are interested in learning more, contact program director, Brian Apfel, at 845.575.3996 or firstname.lastname@example.org. http://www.marist.edu/summerinstitutes/theatre/
