Youth mentorship from home
Around this time of year, we usually have dozens of high school students flooding our backstage area with the excitement and anticipation that only comes from getting ready to showcase their incredible talents on the River Run Centre stage.
Since 2012, we have been hosting MusicWorks|StageWorks, an annual youth mentorship program focused on the art of putting on a professional style show.
This year, we are moving the program online. We are still offering aspiring performers real life experience in concept development, production and performance techniques. With the twist that we are also providing insights into how to record performances at home that captivate audiences and highlight their abilities.
We have invited a group of young performers to present music, theatre, spoken word, dance, short film and comedy in new and interesting ways.
River Run Centre’s technical, programming and marketing staff, with support from special guest professional musicians, will guide the performers through the various aspects of building a successful production from start to finish. The participants will learn about performance planning, self-promotion, at-home recording practices, performance technique, and more.
This year, we are thrilled that our special guest musicians for the program are Royal Castles and Bird City!
