Spark program

Johnson Hall believes that the arts are an essential part of life and they naturally enrich all those who participate in them.  We are dedicated to helping young people find what sparks their interest in the performing arts and giving them the best possible instruction to guide them along the way. Spark offers three different classes that range from beginner to advanced to meet the needs of students with a variety of skill levels. If you have never been on the stage or you are a theater veteran there is a Spark class for you.

Advanced Workshop

If you are a veteran of the Spark program the Advanced Workshop will offer new and challenging exercises that will further craft your skills as a performer.  The Advanced Workshop is for troupers looking to take the next step in creative development.  The week will be a much more academic approach to theater than the Creation Lab but will still be fun, fast-paced and hands-on.  Over the course of the week, troupers will create dozens of original pieces and have the opportunity to pick their favorites to perform at the end of the week show.  If you’re ready to get serious about performing, the Advanced Workshop is for you.

  • Time: 9 AM – 3 PM Monday through Friday

  • Ages 11 – 13: July 27th – July 31st

  • Ages 12 – 15: August 3rd – 7th

  • Ages 16 & Up: August 10th – 14th

  • Fee: $250. Scholarships available.
