Summer Theatre Camp Auditions will be Saturday May 20, 2017!
Ages 7 – 12 please arrive at 10:00am. Auditions will last approximately two (2) hours. Monologues will be published through the website for children to learn and present at the audition. Experienced children are allowed to choose their own 1-2 minute monologue, which can be either serious or comedic.
Ages 13 – 17 please arrive at 1:00pm. Auditions will last approximately two (2) hours. Be prepared to present a monologue, not to exceed 2 minutes. Comedic monologues are preferred.
Camp for ages 7-12 will be June 26 – 30. (Experienced actors may be placed with the older campers).
Camp for ages 13 – 17 will be July 17 – 21.
Prospective campers will need to audition. Auditions will be at the end of May. We will issue scripts at the audition so that campers can begin memorizing their lines before camp begins. There will not be time during camp to memorize lines!
Ages 7 – 12: Campers will experience general theatre training, prop building instruction and hands-on learning, simple costuming design/choice, character construction guidance, and rehearsal. At the end of the week they will perform the short play, which will be the core of the camp.
Ages 13 – 17: Campers will experience an intermediate level of theatre training, prop building instruction and hands-on learning, costuming design/choices, character construction guidance, play analysis and rehearsal, and challenging, rewarding theatre games. In addition, they will be doing a lot of actual theatrical prep work. At the end of the week they will be doing a one-act play!
