JULY – GENESIUS SPOTLIGHT SUMMER CAMP

GENESIUS 2022 SEASON – SEASON SPONSOR – SWEET STREET DESSERTS

After the HUGE SUCCESS of last year’s combined Spotlight Summer Camp and Youth Production of “Footloose,” Genesius is going to do it all over again with…

Presenting Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr.

SPOTLIGHT SUMMER CAMP 2022 SPONSORED BY CAROLYN & JERRY HOLLERAN
SUMMER CAMP SIGNUP IS CLOSED! JOIN US TO WATCH THE SHOW!

Ages 6 through 15
4-BIG WEEKS!!!

During the camp we will rehearse and then present the extremely fun musical…

Schoolhouse Rock Live, JR.

Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Bob Dorough, Dave Frishberg, Kathy Mandry, George Newall, Tom Yohe Music by Bob Dorough, Dave Frishberg, Kathy Mandry, George Newall, Tom Yohe Book by Lynn Ahrens, Scott Ferguson, Kyle Hall

Based on the ever-popular, award-winning 1970s cartoons, this fast-paced 60-minute musical teaches lessons with clever, catchy tunes. This high-energy musical follows Tom, a young schoolteacher, who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Memorable songs as “Just a Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly” and “Conjunction Junction” bring his lesson plans vividly to life.

Camp Activities

In addition to presenting the youth version of “SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE, JR.” we will still do all the fun things we have done at camp for the past several seasons!

Your campers will be off on a “Great Adventure” when they take part in this fantastical theater camp specifically designed for young actors. Their big imaginations will run rampant as this program features a mix of creative and fun activities ranging from movement, singing, visual arts, & theater games. Each camper gets a “Larger-Than-Life” theatrical opportunity while learning the fundamentals of stagecraft – 101 – No Experience Necessary – Just a willingness to have FUNNNNNNNNN !!!

HOW IT WORKS…

We will run the CAMP for 4 Full Weeks – Monday through Friday – 10 AM to 3 PM (Except for week #1 – July 5, 6, 7, & 8 – Due to the July 4th holiday only 4 days, but extended times on those days from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM). Through the week we play theater games and learn basic acting fundamentals. We will also rehearse the youth version of SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE, JR. to be performed the final weekend of the camp. This will be a ticketed event. Even if you are unable to take part in the full production you will still get to learn some of the songs and choreography we will be doing for the show.

We will continue to also present the WEEKLY FREE CABARET SHOW for family and friends on Friday’s at 1:00 PM, EXCEPT for the 4th and final week of the camp, which is the SHOW WEEKEND.

 

 

CAMP STAFF…

Camp Director, Becka Malanios, & Genesius Artistic Director, Larry Fecho, along with the TEEN INTERN STAFF, will be back once again creating the fun at the camp. IT WILL BE A BLAST!

FAQ

Will there be a health check in the morning before being allowed at camp? Temperature taken, etc?

The Genesius Camp Staff will take a forehead temperature reading every morning at sign-in. Camp Staff will also ask pertinent Covid health related questions. We emphasize if your child is feeling ill, in any form, they should stay home.

Will masks be worn at the camp?

Currently, the answer is YES! Camp staff and campers will wear masks. As restrictions are loosened, and or tightened, we will then decide what protocols to follow. Ideally, we would not like to have masks on the campers when they perform, but that again, depends on where we are with the pandemic by July 2022.

Will there be hand sanitizers and hand washing facilities available?

YES!!!

Will the area be kept clean and sanitized?

Tables, props and surfaces will be cleaned regularly. The Reading Liederkranz will also have restrooms cleaned and sanitized.

Is lunch or snacks provided?

Lunch, snacks, drinks ARE NOT provided. You will need to provide for your child.

How and when is payment due?

Payment is due in advance for each week of camp. You can either pay in full for all weeks or break it up over the four weeks depending on your child’s attendance at the camp. You can pay cash, check, or credit card (on our website – credit card fees apply) WE PREFER THE FIRST PAYMENT TO BE MADE WHEN YOU FILL OUT THE ONLINE SUMMER CAMP FORM.
