At the Princess Theatre CAMP stands for Creative Arts Musical Perfiormance. In our Summer Theatre CAMPs students will learn basic concepts of theatre performance and production. We focus on ensemble, full mind/body control, the voice and diction as well as building soft skills like spatial awareness, delayed gratification and more. Students will be introduced to almost all aspects of theatre and performance production from acting to dance and even technical theatre. Throughout the two-week camp students will participate in the production rehearsals and preparations such as Set Design, Light Design, Costume Design, Makeup Design and application, and Prop management. These camps are designed to give students exposure to and a foundation in the various aspects of theatre/technical theatre and performance. Students will rotate in morning sessions from Choreography, to Music, and to Acting. After lunch, students come together for a full rehearsal putting it all together. The last hour is about design, and what goes into putting a show together.
