SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS YEAR'S WORKSHOP PERFORMANCE
 
KIDS 2010
 
 
We are pleased to announce principal staff members for this year's Young Actors' Workshop. They have each taught in our program before, returning with purpose and enthusiasm. Residing in New York City, they work in education, theater and film.

Alphabetically, we first introduce Jesse Liebman. Jesse led youth in our inaugural session in 2008, creating a story theater production of Alice in Wonderland. This year he will work with all age groups. His second feature film was released last Christmas: Did You Hear About the Morgans?, in which he shared screen time with Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant, playing Grant's assistant. On Fort Salem's stage, he played opposite Benita Zahn in I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road. This summer, Jesse was also one of the stars of 110 in the Shade on the Mainstage.

David Hancock Turner returns for a third season. In 2008, he was musical director of I'm Getting My Act Together and the Teen Workshop production of The Wiz. His well-reviewed performance in Act landed him a featured role in last year's Corn! The Musical. Last year, while acting and singing on the Mainstage and musical directing the youth presentation Showtime!, he also taught for the Long Trail School's Rock and Roll Camp in Dorset, Vermont. A singer and composer, he is musical director for stage productions at The Trinity School in Manhattan. This summer, David was also musical director of our very successful production of Forever Plaid.

Maureen Pagano, a choreographer at Fort Salem during both of its incarnations, who last year staged The Young Divas, and this year choreographed Brigadoon, 110 in the Shade, and StarCrossed, provided dance instruction and choreography for this year's workshops.
 
The Program:

On stage, Fort Salem Theater specializes in music and musical theater. In workshop, we pride ourselves in providing the best theater training of any and all kinds available in the area, because our instructors are working professionals in show business who are also experienced teachers, who teach because they love seeing students come alive with self-expression.

The Summer Workshops will provide intensive training in all aspects of musical theater, following the guidelines of our Mission Statement: “The educational wing of Fort Salem strives to support the student in his/her strengths, analyze and address technical deficits, and provide training that will result in a series of general skills that can serve him/her in future academic, community, or professional theatrical experiences.”

Every morning, we’ll have classes in dancing, singing, and acting. Occasional guest teachers will offer their own unique insights into performing. On the final night of the camps, both workshops will come together in a two-act production, created to showcase the strengths of each student in the program.
