Over the course of our week long camps, students will be actively involved in the process of creating theatre. Through a variety of engaging theatre games and activities, students are encouraged to give voice and form to their imaginations. Such tools as improvisation, stage blocking, tableaux, and vocal exercises, help students build and develop fundamental theatre and teamwork skills. Work with scripted plays and dramatic scenes, opens their minds, and invites the communication of ideas in dramatic context as they work collaboratively toward creating a performance. The energetic rehearsal process culminates in a full camp cast performance, presented on the last day of camp to an invited audience of family and friends.
