HOW IT WORKS

HOW IT WORKS…

We will run the CAMP for 4 Full Weeks – Monday through Friday – 10 AM to 3 PM Through the week we play theater games and learn basic acting fundamentals. We will also rehearse the JUNIOR SHOW 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 JUNIOR SHOW WEEK.
