Directed by Adventures In Theatre instructor Jene Rebbin Shaw, Summer Stock KIDS is a two-week summer theatre camp which culminates in a production that is totally produced by Jene and the kids - sets, costumes and props. Each day, the children participate in fun, imaginative theatre exercises which help to develop vocal and movement techniques necessary for creating their character role in the play. From auditions through rehearsals to the performances, students learn to perform with confidence and energy, and discover the importance of working as an ensemble. The challenges are great but, oh, so rewarding for the young performers as well as family and friends. Previous Summer Stock KIDS productions include: Sonw Queen; The Jungle Book; Charlotte's Web; Stuart Little; The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe; The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe; The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. Classes and performances take place in The Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center at 116 North Jefferson Street in downtown Dayton.

This summer, we will be performing
The Adventures of Rose Red
by Sean Abley

Cinderella, Jack, Snow White, Prince Charming and Goldilocks all go into the woods to see their happy endings. But what happens next? How does fame and fortune get in the way of simple happiness? Many of your favorite characters find their stories tangled together as they try to find ways to celebrate their fame, but strive to live a “normal life.” Speaking of fame, what about Rose Red, Snow White’s less-famous sister? Rose has just turned 13 and is wondering what kind of life she will lead in the shadow of her well-known sister. This modern day fairy tale—complete with trendy teenage dialogue and I-Mirrors instead of I-Phones (And, oh! The spiders and frogs!)—explores the true meaning of HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
