Summer Vacation is just around the corner and at Crazy Pants we love the summer time. The warm weather, days at the park, time at the splash pad, and most of all the amazing moments that happen at rehearsal each day. Summer theatre programs really do have a magical quality about them. The longer day programs lend themselves not just to more time on stage, but more time bonding with cast members and tackling things outside an actor’s comfort zone. This extra time spent in rehearsal allows actors to really get to the heart of their work in a consistent and supported way. The end result is an amazing presentation and a huge surge in self pride and overall confidence. Summer time is an amazing opportunity for actors to come into their own at any age. Whether they are our youngest Crazy Shorts actors, delving into storytelling and performance. Or a Main Stage actor, tackling a full scale musical. The goals and their need to come together, as both a strong team as well as an individual, is the same. And if you asked any Crazy Pants actor or staff member what the most rewarding and memorable part of our summers are you would most likely hear it is the incredibly strong sense of family that theatre creates. Cast members spend every day working and supporting each other, sharing silly happenings, and big accomplishments. When that wraps up and comes to and end at the final show it is a pretty wonderful and overwhelming feeling. Next time you see a veteran Crazy Pants kid go ahead and ask them. Summer theatre creates bonds that are truly amazing and very unique.
