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 play performed for public audiences. The 2020 offering is Jack, the Beanstalk, and Other Misadventures by Diana Grisanti & Steve Moulds.
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.
