Summer Theatre Camps: Cinderella 06/08/2015 - 07/03/2015

Our week-long musical theatre camps will teach the basics of singing, acting and dancing while rehearsing for a 30-45 minute musical to be performed at the end of the week. These camps are designed to provide a fun and educational atmosphere where every student has a role to play and teach the importance of working together as an ensemble. No experience is necessary and each week is a different show. Age groups are 5-12 and 12-17. While doing all of this, campers will (most importantly) have the time of their summer and develop lasting friendships!
