Summer Stage Wooster Showcases Local Talent
Summer Stage Wooster is a community musical production that offers a unique opportunity to students and their families.
The musical theater organization, based in Wooster, Summer Stage puts on a musical every other summer at WHS.
According to Todd Patterson, the director for Summer Stage productions, the idea is to allow community members to participate in all the aspects of putting on a musical, from performing in the show, to set design, to lighting and sound. Patterson explained, “Summer Stage is an organization devoted to using talent in our community.”
In the past, Summer Stage has produced The Sound of Music, Life: A Musical Journey and Annie.
One student, Lexi Snoddy, who has been involved in The Sound of Music production in the past, said: “My favorite thing about summer stage productions is getting to meet and work with so many new people from our community.”
This summer, the production will be Shrek: The Musical and Patterson will direct.
Auditions will be held May 24, And May 25 in the Performing Arts Center.
Auditions for children and youth ages 5 through 18 will be held 4:30 p.m. through 6:30 p.m. Auditions for adults will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the same location. The dates of the performance are July 22-23, July 28-30 In the PAC.
