Theatre Youth Camp, Ages 13 – 18
3 Days: July 11 – 13, 2019 – $100.00 with Carrera Schroeder
This year, the youth camp will focus on the foundations of acting. Young performers will hone their skills through improvisation, script analysis, character development, and voice and creative movement work. Their work will culminate in a final staged reading of a play at the Awards Gala on July 13, that is based on a well-known short story. This three-day workshop will also offer students the chance to watch a Mainstage show and participate in the coffee critique of that piece.
