PAC SUMMER THEATER PLAYHOUSE (GRADES 3-8)
Unpaid Internships for High School and College Students
The Performing Arts Center of MetroWest (PAC), Framingham, announces their newly revised Summer Musical Theater Playhouse for youth in grades 3 to 8. The program offers two fun educational musical theater productions for young stars. In addition, PAC offers community service internships for high-school and college-aged students. Each 3-week session runs daily 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, and culminates in a fully-staged public musical performance on the final day. First session: The King and I, Jr. runs from June 29 to July 17. Second session: Once Upon a Mattress, Jr. runs from July 20 to Aug. 7.
Notably, the PAC Summer Theater Playhouse limits enrollment to ensure every student plays a significant role on stage. Daily instruction will include character-development, voice and drama coaching, stage choreography, set-building and prop-making. The program is housed at 214 Concord St., Framingham, in an air-conditioned facility.
Discounts available for siblings and full six-week involvement in both shows. Early drop off (8am) and extended day (till 5pm) will be available upon request for a small additional fee. Some limited scholarships available.
PAC also offers internship opportunities for high school and college students to earn a certificate for 100 hours of community service for their hands-on participation in the daily creative theater process.
