Terrace Little Theatre’s July session of Summer Drama Days is ramping up for its final week and spirits are high, to say the least.
Our budding thespians are as busy as one-armed-paper hangers polishing their audition pieces for the musical “Grease”. Family and friends are in for a treat when six hopeful actors vie for the coveted parts of Sandy and Danny, the dance chorus gets with the beat and the judges try to make their choices.
Instructors Brianna Wheeler and Jessie Louie are using every creative brain cell to choreograph their mock auditions with 29 children. They were grateful to have the help of Tylee Bevan at the beginning of the strenuous process and now sigh with relief to know Drama Days veteran Kyla O’Donnell will assist with pre-production preparations and dress rehearsal.
Tickets for the show will be distributed by the children with first dibs to family and friends. Cost is $5 for adults and $2 for brothers, sisters, cousins and best friends. Curtain is 6.30 Thursday and Friday July 21 and 22.
Summer Drama Days has been running for over a quarter century now and basks in the regular return of wee thespians as young instructors and TLT regulars. “It’s a memory every child deserves to have”, notes Coordinator Marianne Weston. “The student instructors have lots of tall tales, too – after all, it is a drama camp!”
August Summer Drama Days still has a few spaces left. It runs August 2 through 19 at the McColl Playhouse. To sign up, go to Uniglobe Travel and ask for a registration form. For more information, please email info,,,mytlt.ca.
Its been much more than 25 years.

I did summer Drama Days in the late 1970s, and was an instructor for two summers in the mid 1980s, so they have been running for more than 25 years, probably almost 35 years. There must be a lot of Terrace kids who have been associated with the Terrace Little Theatre through summer programmes over the years.
