with Actor/Director/Instructor Jenna Mate
Calling all musical stars!
In this exciting, interactive camp, young artists will learn how to cultivate the sparks of creativity! Campers will participate in a week-long workshop focusing on writing and performing. By using improvisation and learning about story and song structure, young artists will have a blast creating a unique piece. Both original and existing music will be utilized to enhance a story that campers write and perform themselves. This camp is perfect for any young performer who wishes to learn more about theater in a fun, collaborative setting.
And for ages 13-18: AUDITION BOOK CAMP!
