The presidentially-award-winning Girlstories Leadership Theatre program is accepting applications for rising 5th-8th girls for summer.

Event Details

On June 12 – 24, 2023, Powerstories Theatre offers summer camp for rising fifth through eighth-grade girls. This working professional theatre produces the nationally award-winning Girlstories Leadership Theatre program, providing an opportunity to participate in the magic of creating live theatre while learning how to be a leader.

This occasion of the seventeenth Girlstories Leadership Theatre since its inception is bittersweet. It will be the last activity in the Kennedy Blvd. location before developers raze the shopping complex to build highrise apartments.

The teachers introduce the girls to acting, art, song, and dance while creating memories and forging new friendships. This program features a curriculum that emphasizes leadership, using and empowering the voices of girls. With theatre as a backdrop, the girls will discover famous women in history and how their contributions have impacted the world. They will learn to self-advocate and contribute to their school community. The girls find how to tell their personal stories to identify who they are, bonding with other girls in the troupe.

They will learn characterization tools based on Stanislavski's techniques and study proper vocal techniques from a professional music director. They will learn the ins and outs of performing in two production numbers, explore movement on the stage, and participate in improvisation techniques based on the work of Viola Spolin.

Girlstories Leadership Theatre costs $125 for the entire summer camp, and scholarships are available. All instructors have passed stringent background checks.

Girlstories Leadership Theatre runs Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. After twelve days of instruction, the summer camp culminates with a live-in-theatre and live-streamed performance for parents, friends, and family, where the girls present their true story or one about a woman in history.
