If you've ever wanted to experience college life while still in high school, then Hanover's Summer Academy program may be the perfect opportunity. Our respected professors teach a wide range of subjects that will help engage and expand your interests as well as deepen your knowledge of a topic.
Students interested in acting, playwriting, or both will work together with Professors Paul Hildebrand and Jim Stark to create new theatre work in an intensive process of writing and performance. Under their guidance, playwrights will create new short plays, actors will stage them, and then all collaborate in a constructive feedback process to help the writers make improvements in the scripts. By the end of this creative and busy week, writers will have a new play that has actually been staged, and actors will have experience in creating a role that they helped to shape. The workshop will culminate with staging of the plays before an invited audience. The student may participate as an actor, playwright, or both.
