Été des Rêves (Summer of Dreams)
Summer Theater-Making Intensive Camp
Camp 2017 Presenting…Beauty and the Beast
Mount a play based on a French story in one week’s time! This year’s play is Beauty and the Beast. Auditions will be held Monday morning, and camp concludes with 2 performances open to the public on Saturday. Spend one week immersed in all aspects of theatre! When you are not rehearsing, you will spend your time taking workshops in subjects ranging from scenework, improv, mime, theatre games, stage combat, basic set construction and more. Learn from energetic, outgoing theatre professionals! Campers will be placed into groups based on age and language background. No knowledge of French is required to participate, but for our Francophile/Francophone campers, we will adapt to parents’ and campers’ desires to integrate French into workshops and performances.
Once registered, campers will receive emergency forms, waivers, and a t-shirt order form. Parents will receive an invoice for their camp total to be paid on or before the first day of camp.
