Develop performance skills and experience a professional rehearsal process with Summer on Stage! ATC staff and teaching artists support an extraordinary summer learning experience, leading students through a variety of acting, voice, and movement classes in the morning, and afternoon rehearsals leading to fully produced performances – one play and one musical – on the stage at the Temple of Music and Art.
Participants explore the wonders of technical theatre – costumes, set building and painting, props, sound design, and lighting – while creating a technical theatre portfolio and learning from ATC’s team of professional designers and technicians about theatrical design and management. This is done in preparation for their production role in the fully produced performances – one play and one musical.

This summer from June 24 to July 28, we are celebrating the power of the individual with our SUMMER OF RISING productions:
SHE KILLS MONSTERS
by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Israel Jiménez
A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games. She Kills Monsters tells the story of high schooler Agnes Evans as she deals with the death of her younger sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
Roald Dahl’s MATILDA THE MUSICAL
Book by Dennis Kelly and Music & Lyrics by Tim Minchin
Directed by Jasmine Roth
The story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny. Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life.

Audition Information (for Summer on Stage students):
We are excited to offer a Fellowship for 19 year old students who have graduated from Summer on Stage or Summer Backstage. Fellows participate in Summer on Stage or Summer Backstage alongside the students, while also acting as mentors and group leaders to the students, and assistants to the staff. Fellows will also be responsible for writing blog posts about their experience, posting to social media and leading some group activities. Summer on Stage Fellows will be cast in the shows, and Summer Backstage Fellows will be given a production role, so that they can be models of the creative process alongside the students.
Successful fellowship applications will have a strong interest in pursuing theater as a profession, completed at least one year of Summer on Stage or Summer Backstage in good standing, and have excellent mentoring and leadership skills.
