Drama CampJuly 23 - 27 & July 30 - August 3
Rising 3rd-10th Graders
Under the guidance of our talented team of leaders we set out to take young people on a journey to open up their imagination to a world that not only develops their theater arts skills, but also encourages their creativity. We give them opportunities to be who they are by tapping into the gifts and talents that God has given them. They will be supplied with the tools and taught the skills to give them a hands-on experience in what it takes to put on a theatrical production.
Campers will have activities together as well as a specific track that they must select when they register for the camp. For those who prefer to be “On Stage” they will be taught basic stage skills as well as singing, movement and acting. For those who prefer hands on and ‘Behind the Scenes” we have three different tracks which will give them hands on experience creating real set design, characters through make-up and hair, or costume creation.
This camp is for rising 3rd through 10th graders and runs for two weeks; July 23 – 27 & July 30 – August 3 from 9am to 3pm, culminating with a performance for family and friends at the Friday night “Drama Camp Showcase”. Campers are to bring their own lunch each day and wear closed toe shoes and old comfortable clothes. The cost of the two week camp is $250, however scholarships are available.
Our camp program is an excellent opportunity for students with any level of acting experience. In a fun, high-energy environment, we help students build self- confidence while learning stage skills and making new friends.
MUSICAL DRAMA TRACK
Students will be taught basic stage skills as well as singing, movement and acting. They will rehearse their part throughout the two weeks, culminating with a performance for family and friends at the Friday night “Drama Camp Showcase”.
BEHIND THE SCENES
So much of a successful production relies on good set design, make-up and costume design. In these classes the students will learn about what goes on behind the scenes as well as learning some valuable skills in team work and cooperation.
SET DESIGN & PROPS TRACK
Learn how a designer goes from the page to the stage. In Set Design, students will learn to understand space, balance and functionality of the pieces for the set as well as actually painting and dressing the various elements. Additionally, they will learn what props are and how they are organized to assure the cast has them when they need them.
COSTUME DESIGN TRACK
Students will be taught how a costumer goes from concept to completion. In Costume Design class, they will learn to fully create costumes from cutting the fabric to finished garment. They will also learn to make alterations to ready-made clothing to create a new look. From head to toe, they will understand how the costume helps to create the character.
Through this class students will learn to ‘transform’ a person into a character through make-up and hair design and accessories. They will work on basics as well as design their own character. Whether it be a simple ‘person’ or a wild lion, this will be a living work of art when they are done!
