Dive into the world of musical theater at Denali Arts Council’s reimagined program, Summer Stock! This week-long immersive experience, directed by the dynamic duo Kaitlin Lawrence and Danielle Aslanian, promises a fun and immersive journey for youth ages 10 to 17.

Kaitlin, a New York-based professional actress and Theater Director, brings her wealth of experience from numerous regional productions and national tours to guide and inspire young performers. 


Danielle, a talented musician deeply rooted in the community, adds a distinct local musical dimension to the program. With extensive experience teaching instruments and vocals, she will foster a harmonious blend of skills, ensuring that every camper discovers their unique voice in the ensemble.

This year Summer Stock will take a unique twist with a Jukebox Musical, allowing campers to choose their favorite popular pop tunes. Throughout the week, Kaitlin and Danielle will lead the students in crafting an original plot that revolves around the selected songs, creating a collaborative and empowering environment.

As the week progresses, campers will engage in intensive rehearsals, honing their acting, singing, and dancing skills. The culmination of their hard work will be showcased in a spectacular matinee and evening performance, inviting friends and family to witness the magic of Summer Stock come to life on stage!

Summer Stock is a full-day weeklong camp. It runs Monday through Friday, June 10th through the 14th from 9am to 4pm. There will be two performances on Saturday, June 15th.

Dear Parents,

As we eagerly anticipate the start of Summer Stock at Denali Arts Council, we want to emphasize the exciting yet intensive nature of our upcoming program. While we have planned for breaks and a dedicated lunchtime, it’s essential to highlight the importance of sustained focus and active participation throughout the day.

Creating a memorable performance in just one week requires the dedication and engagement of every participant. We kindly request your support in encouraging your child to stay focused, absorb valuable lessons, and actively contribute to the collaborative process. The immersive experience is designed to be not only educational but also a lot of fun, and we believe that maintaining a high level of engagement will lead to a more rewarding and successful week for everyone involved.

We appreciate your understanding and collaboration in fostering an environment where each youth can thrive and contribute to the magic of Summer Stock. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out. We look forward to a week filled with creativity, camaraderie, and outstanding performances!
