About Artstrek 2023
The universe of theatre is yours to explore this summer at Red Deer Polytechnic’s state-of-the-art performing arts facilities. Work with a team of talented instructors, create alongside other young artists, and discover the tools theatre professionals use to shape stories on stage. Artstrek students explore the creative process through five daily classes that include the study of acting, movement, voice, devising, design, directing, and dramaturgy. At Artstrek, our focus is on the learning, exploration, and process of theatre that breathes life into the rehearsal of lines and blocking of scenes. We are excited to welcome students back with Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest as the play of study.
