Based in Bridgewater, New Jersey, Steven M. Darien, the chairman and chief executive officer of the Cabot Advisory Group, LLC, collaborates with organizations on succession preparation, human resources software, and strategic planning. Outside of his work life, Steven M. Darien also serves industry groups and non-profits, such as the George Street Playhouse in Bridgewater.
In addition to a regular season, the George Street Playhouse sponsors the Summer Theatre Academy for ages 5-18. This encourages students’ natural talents of self-expression in an enjoyable, captivating situation. A 12:1 student-teacher ratio assures individual attention. At the end of each two- or four-week course, participants will present their work on the theatre’s main stage. Classes run from June 30-July 25.
In one class for five- to 8-year-olds, students will learn to use songs to tell stories and play theatrical games. Another group will develop a classic story into a play by creating costumes and offering ideas on set construction. Students aged 9 to 12 will enhance their musical talents as they produce The Wizard of Oz. Another troupe will practice collaborative skills as they rehearse a drama. Meanwhile, actors aged 13 to 18 will hone their stagecraft as they focus on improvisation and developing characters. The other 13-18 group will work with playwrights, choreographers, and composers to stage an original production.
