A Piper summer is all about adventure!

Company members collaborate to create a full-scale production. Days are filled with physical theatre; ‘specials’ classes on stage combat, clowning, and improvisation; and ‘Fun Fridays,’ when the entire Piper community plays group games or engages in a process drama!

Performances take place the week of July 25- 28 with a full day of performances July 29. Due to the performance nature of the program, students are expected to attend EVERY day.

Auditions take place on the first day, July 5. While preferences for workshops are considered, placement in a particular company is NOT guaranteed.


As You Like It
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Aaron Novak

Rosalind and Celia run away to the forest of Arden. Mistaken identities, first confusing love and wrestling matches!


Clockwork Unwound
Inspired by Anthony Burgess’s 1962 novel
Directors Laura and Rob Parker

Where total immersion in on-line life is normal, how do you feel anything real? ‘Clockwork Unwound’ is a new play exploring the themes of Anthony Burgess’ ‘A Clockwork Orange’ for today’s Young Droogs.  A physical theatre piece to be devised in part by the cast during rehearsal, ‘Clockwork Unbound’ is a fast moving high energy re-imagining of Burgess’s world that is frighteningly close to the truth.


The Mystery of the Yarn Barn
By Cormack McWilliams
Director TBA

What evils lie beneath the innocent craft store? Detective Duncan Lantigua investigates!


Pippi Longstocking and the Pirates
Inspired by Astrid Lindgren’s adventures
Directed by Lindsey Sproul

Pippi is mischievous, kooky and mysteriously strong, living on her own in a giant house with her monkey.
