The goal of this two-week theater camp is the production of a two-act play. Held on-campus in the Dreiser Theater, it is designed to introduce young participants to multiple aspects of theater through activities and workshops. Camp activities include games designed to enhance the participants’ focus, movement, and vocal projection while improving performance abilities and creating self-confidence. Participants are exposed to additional aspects of theater behind the stage, including directing and stage management; responsibilities that are essential for creating the best performance possible. During the first week, children are split into two age groups (8-10 and 11-13) while learning their parts for the play. During the second week both age groups will rehearse together, culminating with a staged showcase on the last day of class, presented free of charge to family and friends in Dreiser Theater. Students must bring a brown-bag lunch and two snacks to class every day.
