ETC’s Summer Youth Theater Program is a six-week journey through the world of theatrical production, and they are honored for the opportunity to collaborate with prominent Sedona artist, Bearcloud. In addition to visiting Bearcloud Gallery, students will have the chance to learn Native American history and artistry from Bearcloud himself. This exciting partnership will aid students in their end-of-summer production of Stolen Fire, a retelling of a Native American tale, written by Cate Mullen. The production will be directed by program director Breinne Reeder and produced by Camilla Ross.
Spots are still open for the six-week Monday – Thursday 9am – 3pm camp. ETC’s Summer Youth Theatre Program is open to all students ages 4 -17 and has a fee.
