ENROLL YOUR STUDENT NOW FOR SUMMER 2017
AT THE KATHARINE CORNELL THEATRE!
(UNIVERSITY OF BUFFALO’S NORTH CAMPUS)
The RLTP Summer Institute is the only summer theatre camp in Western New York that inspires and enables young theatre artists to create, write or devise, and produce and perform their own 100% ORIGINAL world premiere plays. No matter what story your young star of tomorrow wants to tell, WE HELP THEM TELL IT.
Summer Institute students are the WRITERS – the DIRECTORS – and the STARS.
“I really enjoy the creative process.”
– Henry C., student artist
As students develop and rehearse their creations, world class theatre educators Jon Elston & Bella Poynton provide them with a positive, informative, lively, and fun environment in which to learn, grow as artists, and forge lasting friendships with their peers.
This spectacular & unique program culminates in the one-of-a-kind Final Presentation Night – a world premiere evening featuring an hour or more of wildly creative original theatre straight from the minds & hearts of the Summer Institute students!
“For Noah, the Summer Institute has been the highlight of his summers… We have seen a lot of team building occur organically, so that by the end of the institute the students have become close to each other. Moreover, as Noah’s very ambitious projects for plays have been encouraged by the professional staff, it has been enormously rewarding for him to go through the process of making his words come to life in the final performance at RLTP. Sitting in the audience during the final performance, I sit as a proud father of one of the actor-playwrights, but also in amazement at what all the students are able to do by the conclusion of the RLTP Summer Institute.”
-Daniel Kotzin, parent
“I learned a lot of things that I didn’t know before about acting techniques…!”
– Daltin D., student artist
“I watched my son grow more confident in discovering talents and abilities within himself and becoming comfortable in front of a crowd… Socially, he was able to identify with and discover new friends, learning the importance of collaborative efforts. A lot of laughs were shared…! The amazing instructors have given their blood, sweat, and tears to put this together and teach the kids important tools, providing a sense of inspiration and confidence that they can take with them anywhere, in any profession in life, to help them succeed.”
– Melissa Mawhinney, parent
“(The plays) are all different and unique… and that’s way cool.”
– Cassie B., student artist
“It has been a pleasure to watch the girls’ confidence soar as they learned to show who they really could become. This program also helped me to get closer to the girls, as they were always ready to relate the days “happenings”… The final presentation came as a total surprise to me. No matter how much I heard, I was not prepared for the professionalism the students displayed… They came to the program as strangers and became a committed group of actors (and had a heck of a good time doing so)…
I guess the real test is that the girls are begging to return to the program.”
– Peg Balducci, parent
“We focused for everybody on not just acting out their plays… but making them great.”
– Noah K., student artist
“Giving us the opportunity to write our own stories and our own plays… no other camps ever do that. They mostly write a play and then tell you to do it. But (the Summer Institute) allows us to write our own plays.”
– Belinda D.L., student artist
