Summer Theater Experience scheduled for Charlotte in June

 

A Summer Theater Ministry opportunity is open for students ages 16 to 19 in Charlotte. The Theater Experience will last two weeks (June 12th - 24th) and will be held at First United Methodist Church in uptown Charlotte. Students from across Charlotte and surrounding areas are welcome to audition before March 15th. Audition Information Students may audition through the website or by email theaterexperience2017@gmail.com to schedule an in person audition. About the Theater Experience  Students who have strong talent in Acting, Singing, Dancing or Playing an Instrument are encouraged to apply and audition. Students will perform an original production based upon their own faith stories as well as the faith stories of various other Christians from local congregations. This production will take place on Saturday June 24th, 2017 at 8:00pm. The two week experience will focus on the writing and rehearsal of the production. This experience of building something creative and authentic to reflect the faith of so many faithful believers is designed to challenge each student in their talents, faith development and understanding of what it is to share the faith with others. This Theater Experience is meant to bring students gifted in the Performing Arts from across the city to share together in what it means to be the unified body of Christ. It is also meant to equip students to be leaders in their local congregations by connecting inter-generationally and learning how to be leaders with the arts in ministry. Local congregations can also volunteer by helping with dinners for the rehearsals and serving on our team of creative advisers.
