theartre curtainGrades 5-8   Cost:$180 July 13-17  9am -3pm

Have you ever wanted to star in a play you helped create? Join us this summer, as students learn all about theatre by doing it themselves!  Children are guided, by the instructors, through a process where they play theatre games, create a story, and work together to make that story into a working theatrical production. The participants create their own character, plot, props, costumes, title, and everything else that's needed to make the production complete. You get to play the part you have always dreamed of!   The final stage is a performance on Friday 7/17 at 2pm of their original play for parents, family, and anyone else who wishes to come, followed by a cast party. Lunch is not provided.
