OUR MISSION:

Our mission is to provide campers with a safe, fun, exciting environment in which to learn theater skills. We provide the highest quality theater education while encouraging students to hone their unique talents, to develop their confidence and to discover the joy of being on stage. Each student is given the opportunity to shine in his/her own way. The professional child will be given invaluable tools to help move ahead on a career path.

ABOUT THE YOUNG ACTORS WORKSHOP CAMP (Grades 4 - 6)

Here we will explore the beginning concepts of acting and musical theater. We will spend the first 2.5 hours on acting and the last hour on musical theater.  Acting will be taught by using theater games, improvisation, storytelling, role-playing and scripted material. Musical theater will be taught by using familiar songs from classic Broadway shows and films to teach the basics of musical theater performance: Vocal technique and basic choreography.  Campers are gently encouraged to stretch their imaginations, and discover the endless creativity inside themselves. As always, the emphasis is on having fun!

IS THERE A FINAL PERFORMANCE? Yes, but we like to call it an informance. The session will end in a 30 minute “open class” where parents and friends can watch how we work. This is a non-result oriented program where the emphasis is on discovering our own creativity and NOT on creating a big show! It is an informal performance- an informance!
