SPRING BREAK CAMP 2018 | ENROLLMENT CLOSED

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.
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

- A water bottle
- Lunch that is clearly marked with your name
- A pencil
