2014 Savannah Summer Theatre Institute (Four Weeks) June 30th, 2014 â July 27th, 2014 The Seventh Annual Summer Theatre Institute looks to carry forward the outstanding momentum created by last year's hit production of RENT. Thanks to the renewed interest created by a star-studded film adaptation, INTO THE WOODS has become one of the hottest shows on the boards. SSTI looks forward to presenting a fresh approach to this show, focusing less on trite fairy tales and more on the complex characterizations in the "Ever After". Students will spend the first three weeks in intense preparation for their roles in this summerâs production of 'WOODS'. 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 beautiful city which we call our summer home. The Fourth Week program continues at SSTI 2014. 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. Last year the cast got to spend three incredible days working on RENT with Tony nominee Will Chase. While every guest artist experience is different, it is always a cherished time by our summer family.
