Olympia Family Theater launches Summer Stage

Olympia Family Theater is thrilled to add an all-youth summer production to its education offerings. Summer Stage is an opportunity for young performers to participate in a full-length audition, rehearsal and performance process. Summer stage will focus on ensemble building, collaboration and inspiring a sense of confidence in the theater making process. It will be a fun-filled 5-week rehearsal process culminating in two weekends of ticketed performances on the OFT Mainstage.

The Summer Stage program is open to youth age 10 to 17. Director Claribel Gross will cast up to 20 youth who will work together to bring a beloved children’s book to life.

This year’s Summer Stage production will be The Phantom Tollbooth, by Susan Nanus. In this all-youth production, audiences accompany Milo on his adventures. For Milo, everything’s a bore. When a tollbooth mysteriously appears in his room, he drives through only because he’s got nothing better to do. But on the other side, things seem different. Somewhere along the way, Milo realizes something astonishing. Life is far from dull. In fact, it’s exciting beyond his wildest dreams!

SLIDING SCALE TUITION FOR SUMMER STAGE: Participants self-select what they are able to pay between $175-275. Once cast, families choose the tuition level right for them.
