artsIQ is a unique program featuring an intensive weeklong summer workshop teaching the fundamentals of theatre and introducing the youth production. When casting the show all participants are guaranteed a role. Once cast the students go into a six week rehearsal period for a full-scale musical on the stage of the Memorial Theatre.
Thanks to the support of local educators, the performance culminates when over 2,000 students (Kindergarten, First and Second) attend two morning matinees. Public performances are also offered.
