Summer Camp Class Descriptions
Once Upon A Time
This class is designed to ignite the playwrights and actors in us all. You’ll learn how to create a believable character, basic theater terminology and how to build a scene. Students will create their own characters and then rehearse an original skit complete with dialogue, costumes, and props to perform for family and friends.
Each day is a new adventure as students take a trip of a lifetime. Go anywhere in the world, and to any point in time. We’ll use the power of your imagination to take an amazing journey, developing your vocal, physical and ensemble skills along the way. Each day will be a different destination as students use movement, acting, story-telling, and arts and crafts to travel. Students will present a live travelogue.
This class introduces vocal technique, movement, and acting skills through some of Broadway’s most popular musicals. Working on material from the Great White Way will build the confidence and skill of young performers. Students will put their singing, dancing, and acting skills together for a Broadway showcase. Explore the magic of musical theater!
Make a Scene
This energetic acting class introduces students to warm-ups, stage direction, theater etiquette, scene work and more while learning ensemble building skills and gaining self-confidence. Discover how to use your body and voice to create a convincing character and work together to tell a story. Students will work as an ensemble to perform a scene from a play.
Students will develop ideas for their own commercials, creating their own original product to sell. Using only the kids’ ideas, the instructor will put their work into a commercial script. Students will then perform their commercials live.
Improv means creating unscripted stories, scenes and characters in the moment and on the spot. It’s fun, challenging and a great way to practice teamwork on the stage (and off). In this class you will learn the “rules” of improv, and you will practice the skills that make an improvised scene really click. This class is designed to build confidence and foster creative thinking through the art of improvisation. Students will highlight their favorite improvisation games for the showcase.
Work out your comic timing and lose yourself laughing! This course will focus on both performance and writing skills of sketch comedy. Students will use theater games, improvisation, and a variety of writing exercises to explore their role as comedic actor and writer. Students will work with each other and the instructors to write and create original sketch comedies. Students will perform their original skits during the showcase.
