Watertown Lyric Theater has reinstated a program for participants in their teens and 20s that it hasnt offered in several years. Its goal is to enrich the lives of youth by creating a positive environment to experience live theater, stimulate imaginations and creativity and develop life skills though participating in the performing arts.
The Lyric Youth Theater conducts a performance workshop that provides instruction in all aspects of musical theater: voice techniques, choreography, character development, costume and scenic design. The technical workshop provides non-performance theater instruction in all technical areas from show conception to performance.
Lyric Youth Theater will present Disneys Camp Rock the musical Aug. 10, 11 and 12 at the Lake Ontario Playhouse in Sackets Harbor. A portion of proceeds will benefit Watertown Urban Missions Back Pack program. Organizers are asking the public to support this effort by bringing an item to help fill the back packs.
Disneys Camp Rock the musical, based on the hit Disney Channel original movies Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam, features more than a dozen songs, including This Is Me, Cant Back Down, Its On, and We Rock. The Lyric Youth Theater musical is presented by special arrangement with MTI Theatricals.
