CSI Theatre Camp

June 25 - 29, 2018
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Hey, kids, want to go to the one summer camp where you’ll learn how to use stage makeup to give yourself (or somebody else) bruises, gashes, and old man wrinkles?  Do you want to learn how to swing a sword, take a fake punch, and fall without getting hurt? What about learning how to act and take stage directions? All of this and more is available in the week-long adventure that is CSI Theatre Camp! Theatre Camp is for youth ages 10-18 of all skill and experience levels who are interested in learning more about what goes into a play, on stage and behind the scenes, in a hands-on environment. We would love to have you join us if you have been in theatre for years or just want to learn what it’s all about and have a little bit of fun. The camp will consist of age-appropriate breakaway classes such as makeup, set design, stage lighting, stage combat, acting, audition prep, puppets, improv, mime, costuming, musical theatre and more! On the last day of camp, students will demonstrate their work by putting on a showcase for friends and family.

Note:  There will also be more advanced classes for those students who have taken the camp before and want to build on what they learned!
