Summer When It Sizzles


Five weeks of intensive study are about to culminate in a celebratory evening under the stage lights of the Victoria Theater. For their “graduation” showcase, 71 New Jersey students of the Summer Youth Performance Workshop will entertain family and friends on Thursday, Aug. 1 at 7pm.

The Summer Youth Performance Workshop, open to young people ages 13-18, is an immersion in the study of the performing arts. Through daily technical training, rehearsals and the final showcase, participants arrive at a better understanding of acting, modern dance, musical theater or vocal music, the artistic process and themselves. The workshop encourages artistic risk-taking in a nurturing yet disciplined environment.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children through the NJPAC Box Office, One Center St., Newark.
