The crew of the Spaceship "Skrell" is boldly exploring the unknown, valiantly braving the deepest regions of the galaxy, and turning on each other left and right!

After undocking from the Space Station "Mina", the crew and their passengers are noticing some odd things afoot. The lights are going out. The life support is malfunctioning. Oh, and also crew members are clearly being dispatched and replaced with Alien Imposters! As the crew dwindles one by one, cooperation is their only hope...... but that's not their strong suit.

Who will live? Who will be assimilated? And who is going to go into Electrical…

Join us for this original script by local playwright Tyler Null. It’s a Star Trek-meets-Among-Us world and we’ll be exploring bold and silly characters. The current hope is to perform outside in the parking lot to a drive-in audience. Come along for the ride!


Rehearsal, acting class, costume design, hair design, makeup design, prop/background design, physical acting, voice & dialect coaching, Among Us game sessions, inclusivity in theatre conversations.


We want to see what each actor brings to the table! Please submit a video that includes:

  • An introduction: Tell us your name, pronouns, and a fun fact about you

  • Pick ONE of the following three scenes and perform it! You can accomplish this however you want - do both parts by yourself; recruit a family member to perform with you; use stuffed animals as puppets - whatever you want. We’re looking for strong vocal choices and creative approaches to your audition.

  • 30-60 seconds of you pretending to be in outer space: Make it what you want! Be an astronaut walking on the moon, mission control talking to the flight deck, an alien...just have some fun

  • Video submissions are due April 30th, 2020


TBD date

*Weekly Charitable Contribution Request -Support Teaching Artists & Scholarship Students:

We request families who are able to contribute an additional $200/week per camper.

Tuition does not cover all camp-related expenses. These valuable tax-deductible donations allow PVTC to offer a livable wage to the teaching artists who pour their energy and passion into campers. Returning families will know the importance of the connection between PVTC staff members and students/interns who form positive lasting relationships through the years. Teaching artists are committed to developing artists and individuals and give extra care to each student to inspire and guide them. They are the heart of PVTC. Help us support these artists in the incredible work they do.


Further, PVTC is committed to offering programming to all students regardless of financial need. Tax-deductible contributions ensure we can keep theatre accessible.
