Summer Camp: Improvisation, Theater Games, And Pantomime Camp says

This camp is for students from 1st through 12th grades.
(this camp is limited to 20 students)

Students will learn theater skills through theater games, and learn and perform improvisation. They will also write and perform their own pantomime scenes. These are important skills to become better actors.

Improv enthusiasts rave about its educational value. Not only does it hone communication and public speaking skills, it also stimulates fast thinking and engagement with ideas. On a deeper level, improv chips away at mental barriers that block creative thinking — that internal editor who crosses out every word before it appears on a page — and rewards spontaneous, intuitive responses. Because improv depends on the group providing categorical support for every answer, participants also grow in confidence and feel more connected to others.

*There will be a student showcase on Friday, June 17, at 1 p.m.

Camp is held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Camp Cost: $100.00


Students will receive a drink and snack each. They may bring food from home and there will also be items at the theater for sale. FRIDAY IS FREE PIZZA DAY!

Each day will have a fun themed dress up day (optional).
