Discover the stage with MusicWorks|StageWorks!

Every spring, the folks at the River Run Centre look forward to turning over the stage—and backstage—to a group of incredibly talented and dedicated youth in our community. MusicWorks|StageWorks is an annual youth mentorship program focused on the art of putting on a professional style show, offered through a partnership between the River Run Centre, the Guelph Youth Council and supported by the generosity of TD Bank Group.

All youth ages 13 to 19 interested in gaining new skills and taking part in a public performance are invited to apply. The mentorship program offers aspiring performers real life experience in concept development, production and stage presence. We invite young performers to bring music, theatre, spoken word, dance, short film and comedy to the stage.

Under the guidance of River Run Centre’s technical, programming and marketing staff and with support from Guelph Youth Council members, participants will learn about the various aspects of building a successful show from start to finish, such as staging, flow, self-promotion, transitions and professionalism.

Applications are being accepted online at riverrun.ca/MWSWapply until Monday February 25, 2019.  Anyone with questions about the program or application process should contact nicole.neufeld@riverrun.ca

Guelph Youth Council members interested in learning all about what happens backstage to put on a great show, please email nicole.neufeld@riverrun.ca for more info and to sign up.

We hope you’ll come out and take the stage at the River Run Centre!
