(Ages 7-13)

Children will learn theatre basics from the inside-out including developing and writing their own play; designing, building, and painting their own set; finding and creating their own props and costumes; and performing their own play at the end of camp! Campers will learn acting techniques that will not only help in their performance, but in their everyday lives. We will learn improvisation, how to audition/interview, how to deliver a monologue/speech, and how to perform for an audience. The final performance of their original play will be on Friday, July 20th at 2pm.
