The Eighth Annual Summer Theatre Institute looks to carry forward the outstanding momentum created by last year's hit production of ADDAMS FAMILY. During daily rehearsals with our talented production staff, students will work in an environment that is comparable to the professional theatre. This is not theatre for the faint of heart. While students should expect to spend their days singing, acting and dancing, they'll also be unconsciously be creating the 'family' dynamic that is so prevalent throughout SSTI. While we have a strict, jam-packed schedule, our staff loves their work and their enthusiasm for doing quality theatre is infectious. Our out-of-town cast members will enjoy night time activities with resident assistants and staff (open to locals as well) and weekend day trips to experience the best that the Savannah/Hilton Head area has to offer. The Fourth Week program continues at SSTI 2015. This additional week is filled with guest artist workshops introducing students to a variety of theatrical techniques not covered during the first three weeks of rehearsal. In year's past our workshops have included focuses on Avenue Q puppetry, Advanced Improv study, a Fosse master class, Acting for the Camera, and of course our ever popular day with a Broadway star. While every guest artist experience is different, it is always a cherished time by our summer family.
