What is Included

Students will be engaged throughout the day in a safe, nurturing environment.  Each day’s activities will include:

  • THEATRE BASICS – From stage direction to terminology, young students will learn the tricks of the trade!
  • DESIGN – Regardless of artistic ability, students will have an opportunity to create a world for a show of their own – the science of shows, from set to lights to costumes!
  • WRITING – Students will work with character, plot and themes to create their own stories!
  • IMPROVISATION – Learn to “go with the flow” and create memorable characters & scenes on the spot!
  • DANCE/MOVEMENT – Get up and get moving!  Each day will involve physical activity to keep the blood pumping!

All this, and the show! 

From auditions to performances, students will combine their talents to put on Shrek the Musical, Jr.
