Our 2017/18 season is open to all youth ages 9 – 17. Our rehearsals and performances are at The Scott Block theatre located downtown Red Deer.

Our Fall Programs (Sept-Dec 2017) are divided into two groups for our upcoming Canada 150 themed productions:

  • Program 1 / ages 9 – 12 / “The New Recruits”;  Tuesday Rehearsals 6-8:30pm / November will have a few Saturday scheduled rehearsals from 10am-12:30pm. See our Google calendar for more details on scheduling. 

“The New Recruits”, is an original story made possible with a Canada 150 grant. This story is written from the perspective of a bother and sister named Faird and Anika, who were born and raised in Canada. Their parents, however, are immigrants to Canada whom travelled from another part of the world years before starting a family. Faird and Anika find out that they are moving to a new place called Red Deer, Alberta where they have to start at a new school, which makes them the “new kids” in town. They face a bit of static when their new found classmates are convinced that they and the “new kids” don’t have much in common at all… besides their love for hockey. Faird and Anika find a way to prove to their new friends how wrong they really are. This is a story about friendship, compassion and understanding.

  • Program 2 / ages 12 – 17 / “She Shoots, She Scores”;  Adapted from the book by Heather Kellerhals-Stewart / Sunday Rehearsals 1-4:30pm including production week. See our Google calendar for more details on scheduling.

“She Shoots, She Scores” is a story about two girls who decide to create a girls hockey team. It was originally adapted from the book by Heather Kellerhals-Stewart. During a time when there was NO such thing as girls playing hockey, two girls try to break the norm by fighting to have a girls hockey team, or at least fight to allow girls to play on a team at all. A lot of opposition stands in their way, but one of the girls refuses to give up until she gets to live out her passion as a hockey player.

Not an actor?

This year at the ‘house’ we are taking on six teens ages 14 to 17 years old that are interested in learning the technical side of the theatre. These teens will learn stage managing skills, build or gather props, learn how to operate lighting and sound equipment, work backstage as running crew, help with costumes and so on. They will be called to attend Sunday rehearsals and run performances in December.

Our Annual General Meeting and our in-person registration night is scheduled for  Sunday, September 17, 2017 at the Scott Block theatre for 1pm. We will then go straight into rehearsal for our 12 to 17 year old group until 4:30pm.

 

Here is a sneak peek at what is coming up for our winter programs in 2018.

Our Winter Programs (starting Jan 2018) are divided into two groups:

  • Program 1 / ages 9-12 / Red Deer Performing Arts Festival and creative writing; Tuesday Rehearsals 6-8:30pm with scheduled one-on-one Saturday coaching sessions. These sessions will be booked according to YOUR availability! This program will only run from January to April 2018.

We submit our youth into the Red Deer Performing Arts Festival every year! It is a great way for them to compete with other groups and hear from adjudicators about their performance. Our youth will get a chance to learn movement, voice and story telling. We also offer a creative writing process where our team collaborate together to write their own story which will then be read out loud to their friends and family.

  • Program 2 / ages 12-17 / The Reluctant Dragon; Sunday Rehearsals 1-5:30pm. This program will run from January to May 2018.

This adaptation of the Kenneth Grahame classic was nationally successful in its original productions. It is a charming tale of an unlikely friendship. The village of Guildermere blames the dragon who lives upon the downs for their dying crops and sour milk. But this dragon is a peace-loving, poetry-spouting fellow who would much prefer a cup of tea to a battle. When Saint George arrives, the dragon and his young friend, Glaston, face quite a challenge indeed. While true to the spirit and language of the charming original, this adaptation embraces the dramatic power of what happens when misunderstanding escalates into prejudice and violence.

We will open registration for our winter programs this upcoming December 2017. If you’d like to be notified when we open registration for Winter 2018, email us at treehousetheatre@gmail.com to be added to our list.
