Our Sort of Thing program builds on the work we do in our other programming by allowing students the opportunity to work alongside professional theatre artists in the creation of an original musical. These programs happen at two times throughout the year, the Summer Sort of Thing and the Winter Sort of Thing.
Summer Sort of Thing
SSOT is a four week intensive summer camp program where students will work with profesional artists to bring a musical to life! The musicals chosen for production are shows that have already been performed in Winter Sort of Thing productions. There is no proir experience necessary for this program.
Winter Sort of Thing
WSOT is a six month intensive program where students that have attended other YACA programs can participate in the staging of a full-length musical. Students are educated further in all aspects of the theatre arts while attending organized rehearsals with professional artists for the production. The program culminates with the performance of an original student-conceived, staff-written/composed musical.
Kids from 5th to 12th grade can register to be a part of this exciting program. Go to the Summer Sort of Thing page and fill out the registration form. Space is limited, act now!
Support the Sort of Thing program with a gift to our Hallen Sort of Thing Fund. When our mentor passed away in August of 2013, we set up a memorial fund in his honor in order to continue the program that he considered, "the single most important thing I do each year." Visit the Mark Hallen tribute page to learn about his legacy, his impact, and to donate to the Hallen Sort of Thing memorial fund.
