In order to participate in the camp, the registration form must be filled out, signed by a parent or guardian and the camper, and turned in on March 17.
The after school camp will be in the Coolidge Theatre from 3:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, March 17; Monday, March 20; Wednesday, March 22; Friday, March 24; Monday, March 27; Wednesday, March 29; Thursday, March 30; Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1 (9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.), Monday, April 3; Wednesday, April 5; Friday, April 7; Monday, April 10 and Wednesday, April 12.
Campers will have fun learning choreography, how to project their voices when speaking and singing and how to create a character.
The camp will end with Pay-What-You-Can performances for the public at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 14 and at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 15 in the Coolidge Theatre.
“The show is a full hour of singing and dancing with very little dialogue, which is a departure from our typical camp productions. It offers a number of solo opportunities and features an ensemble throughout rather than a title character or just a few people with a lot of lines,” said Thomas Putnam, Hamilton-Gibson artistic director.
