This camp is designed for both the beginning actor and those with some experience!

BEGINNER PERFORMANCE CAMP (ages 6-10)

Final performance at 3:00 on June 28

The Gray Space | 168 N. Main Street, Room #7, Northfield

$300 (sibling/multiple camp discounts are available, as are a limited number of sliding scale positions, please inquire if interested)

Join us for a week of theater fun and games culminating in a play performance! We will spend the week developing acting and performance skills such as character development and presentation, stage awareness, storytelling, and working collaboratively. The play itself will be determined after enrollment is closed and will be based on the ages and experience of the campers. This camp is intended to be a fun and positive introduction to theater exploration, with an emphasis on the joy of the process rather than the finished product. This camp is appropriate for the beginning actor as well as those with some experience!

INTERMEDIATE PERFORMANCE CAMP (ages 10-14)
Mother Goose Portal

2 weeks: August 5-9 and 12-16, 9:30-3:30

Performances August 16 at 5pm and August 17 at 2pm 

The Gray Space | 168 N. Main Street, Room #7, Northfield

$475 (sibling discounts are available, as are payment plans and a limited number of sliding scale positions, please inquire if interested.)

This camp will be a fun-filled and action-packed two weeks rehearsing and performing an original musical: The Mother Goose Portal! This play was developed by DRT students three years ago, and we can’t wait to dive back into this funny and heartfelt story. Intermediate Performance Camp will focus on exploring and developing the skills needed for performance, focusing heavily on character development, communication with fellow actors and other members of the production team, and building a tight-knit ensemble. While we will spend the majority of our time working on the play itself, there will still be plenty of room for acting and improvisation games that will both help us explore skills and have fun! Our session will culminate with two fully-staged performances of our show at The Gray Space. This camp is appropriate for the beginning actor as well as those with more experience. 

 

*Please note that participants must be able to memorize lines fairly quickly, and be willing to do this work outside of camp time.

ADVANCED PERFORMANCE CAMP (ages 13-18)
Original Show, TBD

registration is currently closed for 13-year-olds, please register to be placed on the waitlist

2 weeks: July 15-19 and 22-26, 9:30-4:30

Performances July 26 at 6pm and July 27 at 2pm

The Valley Players Theater | 4254 Main Street, Waitsfield

$525 (sibling discounts are available, as are payment plans and a limited number of sliding scale positions, please inquire if interested.)

 

Join us for two weeks of jam-packed theater fun as we rehearse and perform an original musical! Our play will be developed this spring by one of our theater classes, so we don't know what it will be yet- but we can't wait to find out! Savannah Yates will be creating the music for this show, and we will have a draft of the play ready to share with all registrees by May with music to follow. This camp will focus on exploring and developing the skills needed for performance, focusing heavily on character development, communication with fellow actors and other members of the production team, and building a tight-knit ensemble. This is a rigorous and fast-paced experience best suited for those comfortable working cooperatively in a focused theater environment and is therefore not recommended for beginners. Our two-week session will culminate with two fully-staged performances of our shows at the Valley Players Theater. 

 

*Please note that participants must be able to memorize lines fairly quickly, and be willing to do this work outside of camp time.
