For students entering grades 6 to 12 who have the love and ambition to perform on stage, The Learning Lamp is offering its 11th Annual Summer Performing Arts Academy June 11- 23, 2018. This two-week program takes place at Richland Performing Arts Center and meets from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, excluding performances.

This year, the featured production is Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka, Jr. – a scrumdidilyuptious musical guaranteed to delight everyone’s sweet tooth. Tuition is $275 and includes acting, vocal and choreography classes, show rehearsals, scripts and costumes, a t-shirt and two tickets to the show. New this year – a sibling discount will apply at a rate of $200.
