Williamstown, MA - The Williamstown Theatre Festival is pleased to announce the schedule
for the Greylock Theatre Projectís 13th season.
The Greylock Theatre Project is an educational outreach program that works with North Adams children living in the Greylock and Brayton Hill neighborhoods to create theatre. In the two programs running this summer, One on Ones and Playmaking, children ages 8-14 will work with professional theatre artists to create original works, as well as perform 10 minute musicals.
One on Ones pairs one child with one professional theatre artist to spend a week rehearsing a 10 minute musical which they will then perform together. The performances are on Monday, July 27th at 5 and 8pm in Goodrich Hall, 863 Main St., Williams College Campus.
In Playmaking children attend a series of 8 classes to learn how to write a play. When they have completed the classes, they are paired with a professional dramaturg/director to help them write a play to be performed by actors from the Williamstown Theatre Festival. Performances are on Monday, August 10th at 5 and 8pm in Goodrich Hall, 863 Main St., Williams College Campus.
The Greylock Theatre Project aims to serve kids in the North Adams community by introducing them to the empowering act of creating theatre. The Project is co-directed by Emily Windover and Christopher Kauffman. Liz Urban is the Project Manager.
All performances are free, but seating is limited, so reservations are a must. To reserve tickets, please call the Williamstown Theatre Box Office at 413-597-3400. Box Office hours are Tuesday- Saturday 10am-5pm, Sunday 11am- 4pm.
