There are a lot of exciting things happening on the Sheldon Jackson campus this week!
To start with, we are in day #5 of rehearsals for our first annual Musical Theater Camp. Our Musical Theater Camp is a new 2-week pre-professional training program for young artists ready for the challenge of producing a professional musical theater show. Students have the opportunity to work closely with professional artists focusing either on Musical Theater Performance, Instrumental Music Performance, or Technical Theater Production. This intensive will culminate with three performances of the show Bye Bye Birdie in the state of the art, Sitka Performing Arts Center.
In addition to our Musical Theater Camp, we have our first ever TEDx Sitka coming up this Saturday, July 21st. What is TEDx, you say?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

Tickets for both TEDx and Bye Bye Birdie are available now at Old Harbor Books.
