Silverton Summer Youth Program registration will take place, Saturday, June 2, from 6-8 p.m. at ATG's new home, 1303 Greene Street. Come meet the interns for this year, enroll in the summers activities and enjoy some refreshments.
The Silverton Summer Youth Program (SSYP) serves the town of Silverton and visitors with reliable childcare for eight weeks during this summer season. The program will run Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. starting June 5th ending July 27th.
Children receive quality arts instruction with emphasis in theatre, fine arts, dance, storytelling and recreation.
Fridays are designated as field trip/enrichment days where children visit various sites throughout Southwestern Colorado. The program concludes with a full production in the A Theatre Group‘s New Artists Series, July 20-22.
ATG employs four college interns who major in theater to instruct children ranging in age from 5-12. Junior intern positions are available to teens ranging in age from 13-19. Junior interns receive advanced theatre training, while serving as counselors and mentors to the younger children.
Randi Foster, who has been with the SSYP program the last two years, will be the SSYP Director this year, assisted by returning college intern Desiree Henderson.
