PAPAS Summer Youth Theatre Institute: Les Mis School Edition
Only want to work backstage?
1) We want you to still submit a video (No Singing)
2) Just simply tell us your age, name, where you go to school and what area you are the most interested in working backstage.
3) Backstage students will still participate in our classes and workshops for the institute.
1) We will have callbacks (where we ask individuals to sing from the show for a certain role) in person when "Shelter in Place" restrictions allow us to meet in smaller groups. We will put in place social distancing restrictions at the time of call-backs if necessary.
2) Just because you did not receive a Call-Back...does not mean you were not cast in the production.
3) You will be notified via email if you receive a call back. We will send you the exact part that we would like you to sing for the Call back, complete with video examples of what you’ll be singing.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY
With Careful and ongoing consideration, we have moved our show dates for our Summer Institute, now opening in late July. We've chosen to move this date as late as possible to allow for conditions to become ideal for gatherings, keeping the health, safety and and well-being of our students and production staff first and foremost during these uncertain times. We are also realistic that staging and seating for this production may have to be adjusted within the recommended guidelines for Peoria at the time. In the event that conditions have not been deemed safe and positive for the community, the production will be postponed to the fall or later. Current seniors who have tentative move-in and graduation dates, please still audition for this show. We will not do call-backs or fully cast the show, until we have more information of what the end of summer and early fall will realistically look like.
Production Dates: July 31-August 7 held at Three Sisters Park (Certain roles may or may not be double cast)
Typical Rehearsal Days and Times:
Monday- Thursday: 4:00-7:00 p.m. and Sundays 1:00-3:30 (we will not rehearse every Sunday)

Not only will be producing Les Miserables: School Edition, but various professors and professionals in their field will join us to teach class sessions and workshops on the following topics: Stage Combat, Vocal Health, Mental and Physical Well-Being for the Performer, Dialects and more. This has been a program Bryan and Dedra have been working on for many years. Come join our Summer Institute Program.

$195.00 for the entire Summer Institute
**An additional Costume fee will be put in place as soon as we have more information regarding"Shelter in Place" guidelines. This may affect our vision and staging capabilities, which will affect how we costume the production.
This Institute isn't just for actors. If you want to learn more about doing sound, lighting, costumes, and technical theatre. We encourage you to sign-up for this program. You don't have to sing, but we would like an audition video and for you to fill out the google form.
