PARTICIPANTS WILL LEARN THE NUANCES OF PERFORMING ARTS AND SHOWCASE THEIR EFFORTS IN A CULMINATING END-OF-CAMP PERFORMANCE.
Our much anticipated Performing Arts Camp has launched for Summer ‘22!
Packed with high-energy dance numbers, catchy songs, and unforgettable characters, participants will learn the nuances of performing arts and showcase their efforts in a culminating end-of-camp performance in front of live audiences! Broadway show performances are complete with costumes, stage lighting, and fully orchestrated musical tracks.
Younger participants will perform ‘Under the Sea’ from the uber-popular Disney production ‘A Little Mermaid’. While older campers will rehearse and perform “13”, the title song from the smash Broadway teen musical featuring the first ever cast composed entirely of teenagers.
All participants will sing a rousing choral medley from “Les Miserables”, and will act in scenes from “The Sound of Music”, “You’re a Good Man”, “Newsies”, and “Grease”. These scenes, directed by older campers, will feature great roles for everyone. With excellent instruction in acting for the stage and opportunities to participate in theater games and improvisation exercises, this promises to be an amazingly fun, outgoing and collaborative theater experience!
