Musical Theater Workshop Program Description
The activities in this workshop are exclusively geared toward fully staging a musical each session. This workshop is for children who get a thrill out of singing, dancing, and devising stage characters, and want to focus on learning more about these essential musical theater skills. Each session, students put on an abridged version of a well-known musical. Past productions include: “Oliver,” “Honk,” “Annie,” and “Once Upon a Mattress”. In each session, campers are cast on the first day and rehearsals begin in full swing on the next. A full blown production is created in just nine days. In addition to learning lines, lyrics, and dance steps, the group works together as a true ensemble, warming up each day with theater games. Each actor is also involved with making props and the set. The highlight of the camp – the performance – takes place on the final Friday of each session, followed by clean-up and celebration. It is strongly recommended that campers are present for all days of their registered session(s).
Please note that because of the shorten length of Session 1, campers will perform a musical showcase instead of a full length musical.
