School's Out For Summer

What a year it has been!! The 2017-2018 school year has been a busy one for all involved with Lincoln Theatre Arts! Although it's important to celebrate the many accomplishments that we've been fortunate enough to experience this year, it is also important to reflect on the year and grow both professionally and personally.

For most, summer is a time to recharge the battery and relax a little bit. This is incredibly important! However, I challenge those that are reading this to also utilize the many opportunities available throughout the summer! Des Moines has become a hub for various creative and theatrical opportunities. It has become much easier to gain practical experience by becoming involved with one (or more) of the amazing theatre companies located in Des Moines! Whether it be through performance opportunities, camps, exploring scripts, seeing live theatre or other less formal opportunities (I mean, people watching at the Iowa State Fair should be an Olympic sport), use some of that free time to grow as a performer, a technician, or general theatre practitioner!
