Artist in Residence

A very exciting feature of life at OLSCA is the Artist in Residence program in collaboration with Stages on the Sound, a theater group.  Actor-teachers from Stages on the Sound work with students in Grade 4, who learn to create collaboratively-produced stop-motion videos.  Sixth-graders work on script-writing, and eighth-graders work with and finally perform in Shakespearean works, such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo and Juliet. Actors from Stages on the Sound come to school and perform a short work in which they demonstrate how much fun Shakespeare can be, and the middle school students go to a live performance of one of Shakespeare’s plays.
