Youth Theater Project Summer Camp

FUN, SAFE and SUPPORTIVE!

Encompassing drama, music and movement, this fun drama camp will focus on developing the ability to communicate through the powerful and multifaceted tool of theater.  We accept beginning, experienced and aspiring actors who desire to be in a musical stage production and seek to focus on developing their acting, dancing, and singing skills.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in every aspect of production; from set design/construction to costumes to makeup and hair to choreography. In this way, we hope to inspire students to become effective communicators using various media, there is MUCH more to shows than who is on stage!

Synopsis of Production

Stanley Lambchop is your ordinary, everyday ten-year-old until the bulletin board on the wall above his bed comes loose and falls right on top of him. The next morning, Stanley wakes up flat. In a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley – the ultimate exchange student – scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem. He’s stamped, posted and cancelled from Hollywood and France to Honolulu and beyond, all in an effort to become a three-dimensional boy once more.

Stanley’s journey takes him all across the globe, to many interesting locales, filled with lots of colorful characters, which make for great casting opportunities.

About Youth Theater Project

Youth Theater Project teaches kids skills in some or all of these areas:

  1. Organizational Skills (planning, organizing, teamwork, serving, and preparing while keeping spiritual content and atmosphere in place),
  2. Artistic Media (power point presentations, sound technology, lighting design, costume design, makeup and hair design)
  3. Performing Arts (dance/choreography, acting, singing).

Participants receive a Vocal Libretto and audio CD on the first day of rehearsal.

We will be working on gaining basic and intermediate /advanced theatrical skills in singing, dancing, and acting. Students will have lots of opportunities to try on new characters, voices, and movements. Families will work with their child(ren) on their costume and a small portion of the set (or other aspect of the production.) We highly encourage parents to keep their theater student involved in any such contributions; this is a learning process they will greatly benefit from. We hope your student will show up with an attitude of excitement, desire to learn, and willingness to TRY!
