Summertime Theater Programs Offered in East Providence
Two evening theater programs are being offered this summer in East Providence: one for children and one for teens. For the third year, de Perla Theatre will offer a theater program for 11-19 year olds. The program runs for six weeks and ends with a performance of the show, Almost Maine. The starting date is June 26 and shows are on August 17 and 18. Actors and those who would like to give theater a try will meet on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church Auditorium, 81 Warren Avenue, East Providence from 5:00pm – 8:30pm for theater training, improvisation, games, and rehearsal time for the show. Performances will be held in this location, too. Information is available at deperlatheatre.com.
The second program, beginning on June 22, is for younger folks, ranging in age from 7 – 10, and will be held at the same location on Monday and Friday evenings from 6:00pm – 7:30pm with a live performance scheduled for August 11 as part of “The Loof,” an annual East Providence Arts Council event held at Rose Larisa Park in Riverside, R.I. The evening sessions will be devoted to learning about the stage, acting, stage makeup, voice projection, and some improvisation as well as rehearsing their show.
