SCORE! Theater Workshop Performance Is July 29

The Embassy Theatre presents a stage performance of its SCORE! 2018 program. The musical theater production is Sunday, July 29, at 2 p.m. Tickets for the performance are on sale now. Purchase at the STAR Bank box office at the Embassy, and 800.745.3000. Tickets are $8 and $5 (ages 18 and under), plus applicable fees.

In its sixth year, the three-week devised musical theater workshop immerses middle school students in all elements of theater. Devised theater is a term used to describe a mode of theater-making that does not begin with a script. Instead, students create a script by exploring the process of thematic and artistic exploration.

This year’s performance was cleverly named “ [insert show name here] ” by the program’s youth participants. Yes, that is the actual name, brackets included, the students gave the musical. The group is named the TBD Theatre Company.

The SCORE! 2018 workshop started July 9 and culminates July 29 with the final performance on the Embassy Theatre stage. During the three weeks, the students were immersed in play-writing, drama, music, production and technical arts. The 2018 workshop attracted 22 participants in grades 6, 7 and 8.

“SCORE! students explore their inner artistic potential to create a living, breathing work of art,” said Maggie Hunter, Embassy education manager. “Our region’s youth are amazingly talented. The Embassy is proud to offer this opportunity for young artists.”

Scholarships were made possible by support from PNC Bank and The Links organization. This program was made possible with support from Arts United, Art Works and Indiana Arts Commission.
