Summer Camp Musicals

 

We are proud to announce our musical theater summer camps, where our students will embark on a journey of putting on a fully staged musical. 

Summer camps will start with a morning conversation around a positive, enriching value or theme for the day, such as compassion, leadership, or communication. We will also begin with some fun dance warm-ups to get the campers moving about. There is also wrap up time at the end of the day to conclude the day with reflection on the day’s value or theme.

These are action-packed and challenging weeks full of learning, fun, and friends! Students will study acting, music, and dance as part of the rehearsal process, which also includes technical elements such as lights, sound, set, costumes, and props. Camps end with 2 fully staged performances!

Scroll all the way until the end for camp information.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat, our narrator, tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child, who gets in trouble for thinking too many "thinks." Horton's challenge is twofold — not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Audition Information for both camps:

Students will audition prior to the start of the program using Google Classroom; we will have an audition information coming soon.  Details will be sent out about one month prior to the first day of class. Every student has a place in the cast. The auditions allow the casting team to find the best role for each student. There may be call-backs and auditions could continue on the first day or so of class.

Auditions have voice, dance, and acting components and are structured to provide a supportive atmosphere where students are encouraged to be brave and show the artistic team engagement, willingness to learn, and a positive, collaborative spirit. No previous experience is needed. First Day of Class email will be sent within a month of the start date.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CASTING FOR ALL PARENTS AND STUDNETS

We try to be as fair as possible in our casting taking many factors into consideration including ability, age, maturity, and longevity. It can sometimes be difficult for the children and parents to understand the decisions behind our casting choices, but we feel confident that the roles we choose for the children will help them to continue to grow in their abilities, allow them to shine as well as teach them that in theater you don’t always get cast as a lead. That is an important aspect of theater for the students to learn. It can be a hard lesson, but it is a reality of the theater world. And we feel that by casting them in a variety of roles they learn to not only appreciate theater as a whole, but it also makes them work hard to be the best performer they can be.
