Mount Carroll, IL-- Timber Lake Playhouse (TLP) will host its annual week-long theatre immersion workshops for teens July 15-19 in Mount Carroll. A one-day workshop for children ages 8-12 will be offered on Saturday July 13. Each year, 20 teens experience intensives in acting, dance, creative writing, theatrical design and improvisation. The program is taught by TLP company members who are also dance and theatre teachers. The week culminates with an original performance incorporating all of the elements covered in the workshops.

This year’s teachers include Cameron Turner, an award winning dance teacher in the Chicagoland area,  and Joseph Capstick, who teachers both acting and dance. Executive director, James Beaudry, who has taught in both New York and Chicago, oversees the program.

Classes are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. The all-inclusive price is only $125 for the week. This includes a prepared lunch every day. Teens are given the chance to work with the resident company and experience “behind the scenes” of a working professional theatre. Additional classes are held across the street at Timber Lake Resort. Each student will receive a complimentary ticket Monty Python’s Spamalot, which runs from August 1-11.

The one-day workshop for kids is only $25. That program runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes a ticket to TLP’s 2 p.m. production of Seussical, a musical based on the books of Dr. Seuss.

To sign up for the either the week-long (July 15-19) or one-day (July 13) workshop, call 815-244-2035 or email boxoffice@timberlakeplayhouse.org. Space is limited. TLP is located at 8215 Black Oak Rd. in rural Mount Carroll, IL. Additional tickets to Seussical may be purchased at $6. Additional tickets for Monty Python’s Spamalot are $15-$23.
