Musical Theater Camp 2018

For Girls and Boys Entering Grades 2-5 (Morning Specialty)
For Girls and Boys Entering Grades 6-12 (Afternoon Specialty)
Session 1: July 2 - July 13
Session 2: July 16 - July 27
Session 3: July 30 - August 10
Session 4: August 13 - August 17 Musical Theater Intensive

This specialty is for campers who wish to be immersed in musical theater or those who are eager to experience the joy of dancing, singing and acting onstage. All campers receive valuable theater experience.

Morning Workshop (Grades 2-5)
Young campers begin with dance/movement warm-ups, followed by fun vocalizations. Campers work on “audition” songs to practice and learn skills, including proper breathing, phrasing, and how to use a microphone. Campers are highlighted in solo and/or group musical numbers. Positive feedback instills self-confidence in this fun, welcoming environment. Children who have never been onstage will feel just as comfortable as those who are experienced thespians. There is an end-of-session performance that is open to parents, relatives and friends.

Afternoon Workshop (Grades 6-12)
Campers must enroll for the last four weeks (Sessions 2 and 3) or the full six weeks (Sessions 1, 2 and 3) because of rehearsal requirements that culminate in a special evening performance. This is a place for children to learn, grow, hone their skills and, above all, perform! The final performance features an eclectic lineup of songs – everything from classic Broadway to current musical theater. Rehearsals for the show encompass all areas of ensemble participation. This is the perfect place for a budding actor or experienced rock star just itching to tear up the stage Come play with us!

Note: There is a $50 surcharge per session for additional materials and staff requirements.

Half the day consists of Musical Theater. For the other half of the day, your child is placed in a recreation group of 8-10 campers in the same grade and gender where all campers enjoy lunch, instructional swim and recreational sports.

Musical Theater Intensive (Grades 2-12) - Session 4 Only
Bust into the art of Broadway! This one week, all-day program is the place for actors of all calibers­ from experienced thespians to those who have only dreamed about exploding onto the stage. Kids will explore Broadway history, learn theatrical techniques, hone their performance skills, develop stage presence, and work in an ensemble environment. Our staff offers a unique expertise in the business of theater between the combined backgrounds of a professional actor with credits performed alongside Tony Award winners and a state-certified teacher and musical theater program director. This exhilarating, fast­ paced program cuhninates in a cabaret-style performance comprised of songs ranging from traditional musical theater to contemporary pop/rock musicals. Our end-of-session performance is open to parents, relatives and friends.

This will be a full day in the Musical Theater Program.
