Theatrical production is more than just actors on the stage.
From music, to improv, to makeup. The Crane River Theater Company coaches high schoolers in the art of performance during a two day workshop. This program is designed to show all the elements that go in to a production.
Officials hope to give these kids the opportunity to experience the joys of theater, and possibly inspire the next generation.
"There's so many different things that when you watch a show you realize what is happening," said Crane River Artistic Director Steve Barth. "Not only just the acting, but how the stage comes together, how the costumes come together, how the sound comes together as one for a production."
"I would like to do something with acting, singing, being musical, still go to college plays and stuff. Definitely even working backstage too, they also do a lot with plays and help out," said acting students Jesus Samaniego and Shelby Rowe.
This weekend's workshop included interacting with Crane River actors and attending a Friday performance of "Into The Woods."
