Bard in the Valley offers youth theatre workshop

Registration now open for 13-week program

Young aspiring actors, aged 11 to 15 years of age, are invited to register now for a 13 day theatre workshop this fall.

Bard in the Valley and the City of Langley are partnering again to create this opportunity for Langley’s youth. The workshops will be held on 12 consecutive Tuesday afternoons from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. beginning on Sept. 18 and ending with a performance on Friday, Dec. 7.

A maximum of 14 young people will be introduced to improv theatre techniques and games, plot development, scriptwriting, costume designing, makeup application, set design, set construction and set decorating, stage managing, production team building and back stage co-operation.

The workshops will be held in the theatre at H.D. Stafford Middle School. The cost is $50 per participant.

The BIV Youth Theatre Program is designed to foster a sense of discipline, confidence, critical thinking and pride in accomplishments in young people, so they can become positive contributors to the community.

These workshops will be led by Shane Rochon, who will also write the final production. Rochon is a graduate of Dawson College’s Professional Theatre Program in Montreal. He acts professionally as well as with local community groups. In 2017 he directed the fall production at the Langley Playhouse – Memory of Water.

“What inspires me when working with children is the self-discovery aspect and watching them grow in their self-confidence,” Rochon said.
