In this theatre program for ages 8-13, campers spend three weeks under the direction and attention of experienced instructor/directors on the production of a beloved classic. This year’s offering is
The Wizard of Oz by Erin Detrick, adapted from the book by L. Frank Baum!
The Summer Academy gives kids the experience of rehearsing and performing a professional-
quality play complete with sets, costumes, lighting, & public audiences (performances take place the final Friday & Saturday). Novice & experienced young actors work together, learning to use their voices & bodies as tools for artistic expression.
The Summer Academy provides a strong foundation in theatre arts while developing concentration, self reliance, and cooperation—in a fun, energetic environment filled with new friends.
