NORCO — The River Region Drama Guild is offering students 8 to 18 years old the opportunity to learn acting skills and the chance to participate in a play this summer.

The eight-evening Summer Theatre Workshop will be held July 14-17, continuing July 21-24 at the River Region Performing Arts and Cultural Center, 15146 River Road in Norco.

The workshop will meet from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. nightly and culminates with a one-time-only performance presented at 7 p.m. July 24.

All are invited to attend.

The Workshop will focus on ensemble building, trust, observation, self-confidence, concentration, imagination and creativity.

Theater leaders will introduce the fundamental basics of theater and provide a well-rounded academic, educational experience of drama for all.

Everyone, regardless of ability and experience, will be given an opportunity to be involved.

The Summer Theatre Workshop allows experienced and beginning students to develop confidence and encourages imagination while learning acting and stage movement skills.

Students will learn to express themselves through creative improvisation and skits. Participants will experience the excitement of a performance and at the same time learn life skills through the lessons in acting. 

The cost is free and pre-registration is not required. For more information, call Henry Sorbet at 504-331-0990. 

The United Way of St. Charles sponsors the program.
