CAMP FORMS

 SUMMER CAMP 2020
FOUR Exciting Options

Become Fearless with your Shakespeare!


MON - FRI    JUNE 29 - JULY 10
9:00am - 2:00pm w/ a short snack break & 30 min. lunch

Class Limit: 20    FEE $500

Students will receive one on one instruction in speaking, understanding and performing the work of the Great Bard.  Disciplines include stage combat, language, movement and performance prep.  Mastery of Shakespeare creates a solid foundation for all types of theater performance, as students confront beautifully complex poetry that serves deep character motivations.

Students and instructors will analyze, memorize and perform a cut version by William Shakespeare (title TBD).  This 40 minute piece will feature scenes, soliliquies, stage action and combat, culminating in a final performance for evening audiences, July 10 & 11.

Each day, Shakespeare students will compete in a camp-wide crossover activity, Improv Olympics, meeting members of other camps, learning improvisation concepts and adding to their repertoire of skills.

Make 'em laugh!

9:00am - 2:00pm w/ a short snack break & 30 min. lunch

 Students will receive direct instruction in many elements of the world of comedy.  While preparing a number of comic plays, actors will also work with special guest artists in Mask, Circus Arts, Improv and Mime.

Stretching imagination and kinesthetic skills to help understand comic material, students will be on the move, learning what's funny and basking in a great tradition that stretches from Commedia to French Farce to the Marx Brothers.

Students and instructors will create a 30-40 minute comic work, culminating in two evening performances on July 10 and 11, featuring short plays which incorporate the skills learned in visiting artist workshops.

Each day, Shakespeare students will compete in a camp-wide crossover activity, Improv Olympics, meeting members of other camps, learning improvisation concepts and adding to their repertoire of skills.

Experience the JOY of musical theater!

Noon - 5:00pm w/ 30 minute afternoon break
*** Evening Performances July 17 & 18
 ***

Class Limit: 30    FEE $750

 Students focus on three major aspects of performance: acting, voice and dance.  Three weeks of learning will include voice training, choreography and performance preparation.  Using the musical MADAGASCAR, JR! as a vehicle for learning, students will mount this 50 minute Broadway musical for two evening public performance on July 17 & 18.  

*NOTE* Auditions for named roles in MADAGASCAR, JR! will require a short (30 second) video, to show student's singing style.  Keep it simple - iphone or video cam - a piece from Madagascar or anything else you would like - and email to Griff Braley.  The full ensemble will be singing and dancing throughout the show; we have plenty of room for those who do not yet consider themselves solists!
