Summer Drama Club

Running June 7 - August 5

(Tuesday and Wednesdays 4:30pm-6:30pm)

Eustis Community Center

Ages 8+  $229

Limit 10 Participants


In partnership with the City of Eustis Parks and Recreation Dept, we are excited to announce out Summer 2022 Drama Club!


The Something New Drama Club is not your everyday "pay to play" children's production where you big bucks for your child to take a role as "tree #4!  Our program focuses on developing the skills of the actor and exposing kids to all aspects of a theatrical production.  This boutique style drama club is limited in number of participants and all shows presented are truly ensemble shows where your child will shine in the spotlight.  While our shows are smaller in scale than many other programs out there, the experience that your child will have is second to none; and, the theatrical skills that they will develop are not found in other programs!


Our shows are all intimate plays that focus on truly diving into the characters, settings, time periods and relationships shown on the stage.    The material and instruction challenges young actors to work to develop their craft.  Through theatrical games, exercises, research and rehearsal participants learn both basic and advance acting technique all disguised as sessions of fun!


This Summer we are trying... SOMETHING NEW!  Giving our more experienced members of the drama club an opportunity to try their hand at directing their peers under the guidance of Mr. Jim, Something New's Artistic Director.  Student directors have been meeting for weeks to learn the craft of directing and will take control of their productions (with close supervision) once the club begins in June.  These small cast plays will allow directors to begin with a simpler script while allowing actors to play some truly fantastic roles!  

The program will culminate with a showcase production of three one act plays on August 5th.  

This unique opportunity will foster growth both in the young directors AND young actors and they will come away achieving more than they dreamed imaginable and knowing they created it together.!


THE PLAYS

Out the Window

by Richard Harris, Directed by Kylie Q

Here is a play in which the three characters (man, wife and mother-in-law) either fall, jump or are pushed out of the window. If this sounds unusual — it is. It’s also one of the funniest pieces of avant-garde comedy to come our way in many a season. The tongue-in-cheek humor in this exceptional little play will brighten the stage for players and audiences alike.


Victor

by Jeremy Robertson, Directed by Kayla M

A household of eccentric characters — all played by one actor — greet two journalists in search of the mysterious author named “Victor” who submitted an article about multiple personality disorders to their magazine.

Ed and Stacy are welcomed by Betsy, a kindly matron who introduces them to everyone else who lives at the house. First they meet her cantankerous father, Victor, and it’s no coincidence that he bears a striking resemblance to her tightwad brother, who’s also named Victor. The situation quickly escalates from confusing to crazy when they encounter Victor the butler and Betsy’s nephew — another Victor, of course.

By the time Victor the dog comes bounding in on all fours, your audience will be rolling in the aisles! When Ed and Stacy finally meet the author of their submitted article, Betsy’s Uncle Victor, it becomes clear that Victor is, indeed, quite an expert on multiple personality disorders. 


Not My Cup of Tea

by Albert Groff, Directed by Maddie W

A comedy in which every member of the cast gets murdered! A domineering old maid persuades her silly spinster sister to join her in a plot to murder their mother, and what a time they have doing it!  Mother doesn’t eat the poisoned cookies, there are no shells in the shotgun, pushing her out of the window of the first floor isn’t practical and it is so embarrassing to be caught in the act of trying to hit your mother over the head with a rolling pin. It’s even worse when it turns out that mother doesn’t have any money and doesn’t even own the house. The only thing to do is to sit down and have a quiet cup of tea which mother has thoughtfully prepared. Alas! Kindly old Mom has worried about what might happen to her dear girls when she is gone and has poisoned their tea. While they sip their fatal cups, Mother helps herself (finally) to the lethal cookies.

Fun, friends, learning and creating!

What our customers are saying

My daughter has learned so much at Something New Studio and accomplished more than I could have imagined!  Jim and his team have stretched these kids imaginations further than I had thought possible.  It's great to see their finished product and know that they 100% created it from nothing.

Mike, Mt. Dora

Kylie loved the weekly paint classes.  Lindsey does an amazing job of making sure that each child is proud of their work and happy with the results!  To top it off it is actually fun for the kids!
