This exploration of theatre will build on the basic skills and foster a deeper understanding of all the elements that are needed to be a successful performer. It will focus on each student’s needs and help them discover their “inner-actor” as they work as a group and individually. They will audition, rehearse, and perform a play on the last day of class.

SPRING BREAK CAMP 2018  |  MARCH 19 – 23

Worried your child will get antsy during Spring Break? Why not be extra sweet to your children and off them an extra dose of that theatre sugar in Topeka Civic Theatre’s Spring Break Camp for Willy Wonka KIDS.

Ages: Kindergarten to High School

Price: $150 ($130 for TCT Season Members)

Willy Wonka KIDS is chock-full of fun characters and songs for children of all ages, whether they are being introduced to theatre for the first time or have been in productions for years. The age range of this camp is the same as for our Academy production season: kindergarten to high school. This gives campers the experience of working together in a safe environment similar to that of other productions. That said, they will also be divided by age for different activities during the week.

THE EXPERIENCE

Auditions: Don’t worry – everyone gets a part and we’ll help prepare every camper
Rehearsal process that ends with a final performance for family, friends and fans
Develop music skills during music activities and rehearsals
Enhance their dance skills during dance rehearsals
Explore technical aspects including set, costume and prop designing and building

After-Care Option
For families that would benefit from an after-care option Monday – Thursday, pick-up is anytime between 3:45pm and 5:30pm. The cost for after-care is $10/day/child.
