POTTSTOWN PA – Steel River Playhouse, with a mission that includes not only community entertainment but also education, will use a new grant from the Student Philanthropy Council of The Hill School to provide tuition assistance to selected students taking courses at the theater, 245 E. High St.
Steel River’s summer camps begin this month, it said, with sessions for grades 3-6 and 7-12. Individual lessons also continue through the summer; group classes return in September. Information on classes being offered, pricing, and the qualified instructors for each subject, is currently available online.
“Our theater education programming is designed to meet every student where they are,” Education Director Stacey Michaud explained. “Some students participate for fun, fellowship and a new experience. Other students are beginning their vocal and acting training with us because they dream of having a career in the arts.”
The Hill School grant, she added, allows students to grow and thrive, whether they are interested in performing, the technical aspects of theater, or improving their self-assurance, ability to work as part of a team, or overcome fear of public speaking and presentations.
“We listen to everyone’s hopes and goals, and support them in their journey,” Michaud said. “We always strive to make sure that our students have fun, learn something, and want to return for more wonderful lessons, classes, workshops and productions.”
Part of the theater’s appeal, it said, is its variety. Steel River supplies acting and voice instruction, lessons on guitar and ukulele, workshops, the summer camps, and a summer “bridge” program that introduces students to a full production experience.
