Students will work with professional teaching artists including Michelle Lauto and Aaron Thacker-Woodruff, to create a brand new musical. Classes encourage students to develop new skills in writing, singing, acting and movement. Drama naturally creates an environment where students must take risks. Through games and activities, the teachers help build the students’ confidence. Each student will participate in the creation and completion of the musical, learning the importance of practice and working as an ensemble member and how both will help support them on stage. Students will be able to share their experiences and passions to create a dynamic songs and story for their final show. Each show will begin and end with a whole camp number to a popular hit from a musical or the radio that relates to the theme of their show. Each session’s classes are held from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily, with the performance being held on the final Friday of camp at 2:15 p.m. Pricing: Sessions are $650 ($585 for the June 26 – July 7 session) with discounts available for siblings, or students signing up for multiple sessions.
