Through the Stage Door - 2nd session!
with Kate Carson-Groner
For ages 6-12, 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
August 2 - August 6, 2021
Due to high interest, we have added a second session of our introduction to theatre camp! Join us for an introduction to the world of theater through games, improv, silliness and fun! In this week long camp, children aged 6-12 will be introduced to a wide range of theater styles without the added pressure of a production. Students will work together (but safely distanced!) to build characters, scenes, and imaginary worlds by learning to support and encourage each other’s creativity. The class will focus on a variety of performance and theater game styles meant to encourage teamwork, confidence, and imagination and give an overview of the delightfully wacky world of theatre. This camp will follow safety protocols as designated by the State of North Carolina.
