Campers will experience all aspects of a production from idea to performance. Campers will work in teams to create original scripts related to the session theme.

They will focus on play writing, characterization, dialogue and performance, while also learning more about the technical aspects of staging a short play. Campers will perform for family and friends the final two days of the session. Quality arts training with a chance to write, perform, and tech all rolled into one! Price is $200 per session.
