Spring Theatre Announces its 2018 Summer Camps
Spring Theatre will offer four acting camps this summer: Disney’s Newsies, Great Pretenders, The Princess Bride, and Musical Theatre “Tuning”. Information and registration forms are available online at www.springtheatre.org or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disney’s Newsies is a two-week, fully-staged, musical theatre camp. Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy who dreams of a better life, far from the hardship of the streets. Campers will learn all aspects of acting and stage presence, facial expressions, singing techniques, projection, and choreography as they prepare for three public performances. Directed and choreographed by Erinn Diaz and Dan Beckmann, this camp will run July 9-20, from 9 am-3 pm (Monday-Friday). Performances will be held July 20 & 21 at 7 pm and July 22 at 2 pm at the Hanesbrands Theatre.
Great Pretenders is an all-new, one-week theatre camp for four and five-year-olds. This camp, led by Margaret Wages, was developed to tune into the imagination of young children. Each day, campers will wear costumes and practice theatre through play. A great introduction to the world of theatre, this half-day camp will be held July 23-27 from 9 am–12 pm.
The Princess Bride is a one-week, fully-staged, non-musical camp. As the young actors prepare for three public performances of this delightful fairy tale about the beautiful Buttercup and her one true love, they will learn all aspects of acting and stage presence, facial expressions, projection, and character development. Directed by Mark Flora, this camp runs July 30-August 3 from 9 am-3 pm (Monday-Friday). Performances will be held August 3 at 7 pm and August 4 at 2 pm & 7 pm at the Mountcastle Theatre.
Musical Theatre “Tuning” is a one-week camp for actors, singers and dancers ages 8-18. Led by Cheri Van Loon, this camp will offer all levels of performers the opportunity to tune their performance skills through acting, stage presence, music, and dance training and direction. Dates for this camp are August 6-10 from 9 am – 2 pm (Monday-Friday) and will include a free showcase performance at the end of the week at a local retirement facility.
Camps range in tuition from $125-395.
Auditions are required for the Disney’s Newsies and The Princess Bride camps. They will be held on Saturday, May 12; please email email@example.com for an audition time.
