Social Summit: Lake Dillon Theatre Company begins Summer Youth Workshops

Summit Daily staff report

The Lake Dillon Theatre Company hosted the first session of its Summer Youth Workshops from Monday, June 8, through Saturday, June 13.

The program included three different workshops, with all three groups learning songs and choreography for a culminating musical review put on for family and friends.

In Playmakers, for children in kindergarten and first grade, and Intro to Music Theatre, for second- through fourth-graders, the students adapted a book into a play and were involved in writing the play and figuring it out from page to stage. In Music Theatre Intensive, for fifth- through seventh-graders, the kids wrote an original skit based on several fairy tales.

"All three groups gained valuable skills in creating a play and the fundamentals of musical theater," said Tim D. O'Donnell, director of education for LDTC. "Students learned the basics of music theory, stage terms and directions, creating a character and character development."
