The perfect summer camp for young aspiring performers!
What is "Theater Creations Camp"?
This August, Chatham Community Players will offer a two-week theater arts camp for children ages 7-10 lead by Scott Tyler, the Camp Director/Instructor. Our campers will learn the fundamentals of acting onstage while using their imaginations and artistic creativity to develop their very own play! Through various games and exercises, our campers will also learn about different theatrical elements and how they are used to shape a performance. An original script will be created using the campers chosen storyline and characters. This work will be rehearsed and ultimately performed on the CCP stage.
The camp culminates in a full performance with no scripts in hand for family and friends. Half day campers get to create one play. Full day campers will get to create two plays.
When is "Theater Creations Camp"?
Camp runs from Monday, August 6th, through Friday, August 17th (weekdays). There are a few options when signing up: You can be a FULL DAY camper for the whole two weeks (both AM and PM sessions) or you can be a HALF DAY camper (AM or PM). AM runs from 9am--11:30 with a 15 minute break for snack. Lunch is from 11:30--12. Then PM runs 12--2:30 with another 15 minute break.
