About Junior Theatre Camp

This three-day afternoon camp, a companion to the regular CSI Theatre Camp, is designed to introduce younger students (ages 6 through 9) to the world of theatre. No experience required! Campers will learn about concepts of drama through games and storytelling. They will learn the basics of what goes into a play -who does what, stage direction, how to express your emotions through performing, stage voice basics, and movement.

Meghan Burnham

Camp Director Meghan Burnham has lived her entire life as a lover of the arts. This is not an over exaggeration, as she was able to discern a song in a major key from one in a minor key as a newborn. Ok... that may be a bit of family legend that isn't backed by physical evidence but Meghan still likes to believe it is a true tale that recounts her genius as a cue-ball-headed infant. While that story about her may or may not be true, what IS true is that Meghan has spent her entire adult life soaking in everything she can learn about Theatre. She became entranced by the stage and the art of acting as a teen living in Jerome Idaho. Shane Brown, who now brilliantly teaches Theatre and English at the College of Southern Idaho, was her high school theatre teacher and continues to be her mentor. From the moment her infatuation with theatre took hold as a teen, Meghan has grown her skills as a performer by acting in dozens of staged productions put on by multiple community groups, including The Dilettantes and the Magic Valley Repertory Theatre. Her passion for performance helped her to find new passions in the theatrical world. These include lighting design and operation, directing shows for youth groups, and teaching what she has learned to future generations of thespians. Meghan worked as a lighting technician and designer at the historic Orpheum Theatre for nearly four years, and taught acting while directing shows for the Ovation Performing Arts program for two years. In 2019, Meghan had the absolute pleasure of teaching acting classes to the College of Southern Idaho Theatre Camp with Patrick Rexroat. She had every intention to teach again for the 2020 camp, but I think we all know how that year was for social gatherings. Meghan currently works at the College of Southern Idaho as a Technician for the Fine Arts Auditorium, and is thrilled to her core that she gets to work with and around the most talented teachers, staff, and students the Magic Valley has to offer.
