Academics

File Under: summer camp, theater camp, theatreworks

Join us for another year of Theatreworks! Children ages 6-14 are invited to attend a week-long summer camp to learn about the art of theatre. From July 24 – July 28, participants will spend the week taking classes with trained professionals, enjoying theme day prizes and gifts, watching a special Madcap Puppet show, and celebrating with a pizza party and a finale performance.

For the camp, children are given the option to choose between two categories: “Fun with Acting” or “Musical Theatre.” The acting option concentrates on improvisations, developing characters for stage, voice/imagination activities, script creation, acting games, storytelling, set/prop design, and acting skills. The musical theatre option focuses on Broadway songs and choreography, script creation, acting games, prop/set design, and musical acting skills.

The camp is directed by Lisa Bodollo, a local high school and college instructor. Other camp instructors are selected from the Mount, Northern Kentucky University, Wright State University, Indiana University, Cincinnati College of Music, Xavier University, Ball State University, and Madcap Productions.
