STAR SUMMER PROGRAMS
SOOP offers two summer programs:
CUPPA SOUP & BOWL OF SOOP
Our weekly “mini-camps” for kids ages 5-8 and 9-11, take place at the 530 Studio (530 Fifth Avenue in Pelham, NY) and are “half day” camps offered in weekly increments. For grades K-2, we offer CUPPA SOUP: 15-hour, week-long workshops focusing on a different play each week, to expand young imaginations through exercise and interactive theatre games. For grades 3- 5, we offer BOWL OF SOOP: 20-hour, week-long workshops focusing on ensemble-building, character development and creative collaboration, culminating in a family-friendly performance at 530 Studios in a supportive, low-pressure environment.
SUMMER IN THE CITY – TEEN/COLLEGE INTENSIVE
SOOP high school and college-aged students head to NYC for a total immersion in the world of professional theatre! Working with a highly skilled group of theatre artists, students will learn what it takes to mount a brand new (or currently un-produced) musical from the “ground up” in New York. Together with their director, musical director and choreographer, plus an occasional drop-in from the composer and librettist, students will gain the knowledge necessary to navigate this exciting, creative, and often challenging art form. Rehearsals will take place in a working NYC studio, alongside other professionals, with a “tech week” move into a legitimate Off-Off Broadway space for 3 final public performances.
