We are excited to add a new element to our SPARK Youth Production this year! We will be bringing in Industry Professionals to run workshops with the students throughout the duration of the program. These workshops will include things like Stage Combat and Voice Work. Because there is a cost associated with bringing in workshops like this, there will be a fee for those students who are selected for the production, in an effort to cover a portion of the workshop costs.
