Seeking Staff for Kids’ Summer Workshop

Monday, February 18th, 2019

Wheaton Drama is now seeking teachers for their annual Summer Workshop. Wheaton Drama workshops will help build confidence by giving the attendees first hand experience in creating a live production. Children will learn how teamwork works in building a theatrical presentation…besides having fun and making new friends.The place to be this summer is Wheaton Drama’s Playhouse 111.

Teachers will be responsible for working with a specific age group in building theatre skills, music skills or dance skills (depending upon the position they apply for). There will be several meetings in order to prepare for the summer as a group prior to the start of our July session. We will work as a leadership team to make sure that all staff feel comfortable and know what to expect.

Dance – Staff will be responsible for teaching each group a “class” dance to the music choose by the music teacher. They will also be teaching a camp finale dance number to the music choose by the music teacher.

Music – Staff will be responsible for teaching each group a “class” song that fits with the camp theme (to be chosen by the workshop staff). They will also teach a camp finale song that fits with the camp theme (to be chosen by the workshop staff).

Theatre – Staff will be responsible for working with their “class” on various theatre games to help build confidence. They will also find and present a short script that will fit with the camp theme (to be chosen by the workshop staff).

Our workshop moto – “It is about the process NOT the product.” We only have one week together and our goal is for the students to have fun and to learn something along the way. They should make growth from the moment they walk into the theatre on day 1 to the moment they leave on day 6. Our leadership team is there all week to help in anyway they can.

Teachers can apply for Music, Theatre or Dance for week 1 (elementary), week 2 (middle school / high school) or both weeks. They will get paid $500 per week.

All applications are due no later than midnight on March 12th.
