Summersplosion is a summer theatre program that allows participants to experience roles in theatre that they may not usually have the chance to try. Participants are separated onto teams, which are each led by a captain. Over the course of the summer, the teams work together to write, produce, and perform a new one-act play of their own. Teams are responsible for the directing, technical work, costuming, set design, props, and every other element of producing their show.
