THIS CAMP IS FULL ~ Call 799-2510 to be placed on a wait list.
July 17
– 21  (ages 9 to 16)
It’s so fun being bad! The bad guy or gal, that is! Explore the dynamics that go into becoming the bad guy. Scar from The Lion King, Cruella DeVille from 101 Dalmatians, Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, Captain Hook for Peter Pan, The Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz — they all get a bad rap, but they are so fun to play! We’ll explore these characters (and more!) including songs and scenes from their respective shows. At week’s end, we’ll show your folks how good it is to be bad. (On stage, that is!)

Join us for an intense (yet extremely rewarding!) camp for students who are eager to explore performing on a regular basis and perhaps even study theatre in high school and/or college. We’ll spend our days developing performance pieces (scenes as well as musical theatre selections) that focus on the whole performer (vocals, movement and character!). Enjoy learning from diverse faculty who have expertise in their focus area. This is the second offering of this camp and it will NOT be repetitive so feel free to join us for one or both!

Audition Dates are Set. Now What?
July 31-Aug. 4 (open to high school students only)
This hands-on audition workshop will provide the tools needed for participants to walk into their next auditions feeling ready and confident! Learn how to own future auditions through individual monologue and vocal coaching in a fun, safe, and constructive environment. Each participant will engage in character development using improvisation exercises, stage movement work, and vocal and acting techniques and expression exercises in both group and individual settings. Students will learn how to explore characters, take risks and develop performances, trusting instinctual and bold choices. The young performers will also walk away from the workshop having been introduced to materials to expand their audition repertoire. At week’s end, we will hold a mock audition so students can practice what they’ve have learned for family and peers. Join us and walk away with further developed confidence and creativity needed to perform dynamically in initial audition and callback scenarios. This workshop will give you the opportunity to discover an elevated sense of self-awareness and perhaps a little of that “je ne sais quoi” performers strive for! This camp will be led by Kerri Roberts and Sheldon Paschal. audition dates

Hey parents — here’s the “adult talk!” In all of our classes, your student will begin to develop technique (or continue to hone their skills if they are not new to the theatre). From learning the basics of theatre to exploring character development, students will discover skills that will not only help them on the stage, but also will serve them well in many aspects of their lives! Shhh… don’t tell them that this is actually good for them.
