CCD’s one week residency provides an opportunity for youth to work alongside two professional artists in mounting a full theatrical production on The Paramount’s stage! The residency begins with an audition, followed by a week of rehearsals and theater workshops, and culminates with an original 60-minute musical adaptation of a classic children’s story. CCD provides all the elements of the production – professionally designed and produced music, costumes, props, sets, and make-up – all to make this an unforgettable experience for everyone! The residency is designed to purposefully and intrinsically instill skills of character such as trustworthiness, respect, and responsibility while participants stretch their muscles of creativity and bravery through the art of theater.
CCD encourages students to take creative risks and trust without self-judgment, stretching their creativity and bravery “muscles” as they develop social skills like teamwork, respect, and empathy through their exploration of theatre.
