Filmmaking and Youth Theatre Players Summer Camps

Youth Theatre Players

You are invited to join the students at SLCA’s Youth Theatre as they bring you a play about kids, by kids, for kids (and big kids too!), in their latest production of “All the World’s a Quest”, written and directed by Sue Frost and Val Kavanaugh, with music by Jim Holmes.  What happens when sixteen students are assigned to a theater “enrichment” class, but most of them want to be playing sports, studying math or staying home?  And those who are interested in theater don’t really want to put in the effort?  It takes all the patience and skill of four muses to inspire the group to work together and create a play.  But will the play really work?  Will it have those necessary elements to make the “magic of theater”? Join us on Aug 4 at 7pm or Aug 5 at 2:30pm.  Tickets $4. ea., all welcome, first come first served.   SLCA is located at 2880 NY 43, Averill Park, NY, is fully handicapped accessible, with free parking.

Instructor – Jim Powers

An all-inclusive, start to finish, hands on film making course.  Each student will work on every aspect of the filmmaking process.  From “the pitch” to screenwriting, acting, filming, sound tech, producing, directing, editing and post production.  Taught by multi-award winning filmmakers Jim and Steve Powers, this immersive class is for anyone who is interested in the art of filmmaking and is ready for the exciting and busy world of making movies from script to screen.
