SUMMER CAMPS

Introduction to Performance Camp (Ages 6-10)
This camp is currently full, please register to join the waitlist

1 week - June 26th - 30th, 9:30 - 2:30, Final performance June 30th at 2:30PM

Memorial Park, Northfield 

$250

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!

Performance Camp (ages 10-18)
This camp is currently full, please register to join the waitlist

2 weeks - July 17th - 21st and July 24th - 28th, 9:30 - 4:30

Final performance July 28th at 6pm and July 29th at 2pm

Valley Players Theater, Waitsfield  

$450 (sibling discounts are available, as are 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. 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 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.

Technical Theater/Performance Camp Combo (ages 10-18)

This is a perfect option for someone who is interested in both the performance and technical sides of making theater! As an actor/techie, you will be cast in a small role in the play, and spend your mornings in theater games and rehearsals. In the afternoons, you will work on the technical elements of the show, such as costume design, graphic and artistic design, lighting and sound board operation, set design and building, and prop design and creation.

Technical Theater Camp (ages 12-18)

This camp is a great way to explore or expand on technical theater skills, including costume design, graphic and artistic design, lighting and sound board operation, set design and building, and prop design and creation. While all technical theater campers will end up working across the board in terms of areas, you will also be able to focus on areas of interest and learn about the ways in which these technical aspects support and inform the production as a whole.
