Does your child love live theater and want to perform on stage? If so, immerse your young performer in a mini summer-stock experience! The Harris Arts Center is hosting a two-week theater camp for ages 6-16. Camp will run from July 9 – 20, 2018, with performances on July 20 & 21.
While rehearsing for “Xanadu Jr.”, campers will learn the fundamentals of musical theater – acting, voice and dance. All students will be in the show, but auditions will be held prior to the first day of camp to determine roles. The show will be double-cast to ensure that every camper is given an opportunity to shine! Roles for males, females, singers and non-singers are available.
During week 1, all students will attend from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Week two, students will attend from either 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. depending on their cast. At the conclusion of camp, students will showcase a full scale production, complete with mics, costumes, lights and props. Campers experience all phases of a theatrical performance: auditions, blocking rehearsals, character development, memorizing lines, music and dance rehearsals, and finally, performing the show for two audiences.
Campers will develop confidence and teamwork while making new friends and lasting memories! Those who are shy, can conquer stage fright in a safe and nurturing environment.
This theater camp is an invaluable experience that will prepare young actors for future auditions. The cost is $225 for HAC Members, $250 Non-members (10% sibling discount). The fee includes costumes & props, camp T-shirt, two complimentary tickets to matinee show. Limited spots available – register by June 27.
