2013 SUMMER THEATRE CAMPS
Camp dates: Mondays – Fridays, June 10 – 21, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Directed by Adventures In Theatre instructor Jene Rebbin Shaw, Summer Stock KIDS is a two-week summer theatre camp which culminates in a production that is totally produced by Jene and the kids - sets, costumes and props. The challenges are great but, oh, so rewarding for the young performers as well as family and friends. Previous productions include The Jungle Book; Charlotte's Web; Stuart Little; The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe; The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe; and The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland. Classes and performances take place in The Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center at 116 North Jefferson Street in downtown Dayton.
This summer, we will be performing
Bring this beloved story to life as you join Dorothy and her friends for a magical adventure from Kansas to the Emerald City. After a fierce tornado lands Dorothy’s house on the Wicked Witch of the East, Dorothy finds herself in the land of Oz and is hailed by the Munchkins as a heroine. But Dorothy wants desperately to go home and soon meets three noble friends: the Scarecrow seeking brains, the Cowardly Lion who wants courage and the Tin Woodman who desires a heart above everything. Together they travel down the yellow brick road and face many obstacles along the way. Eventually, they do meet the Wizard and discover that things are not always what they seem. Their incredible adventure together helps each of them to find their true selves, and they soon realize “there’s no place like home.”
Kids, read the innovative Oz script by Anne Coulter Martens with your parents and audition for the role that you desire. Once cast, you and other young actors will learn how to create a character role utilizing vocal skills and original movement qualities. Each day of Summer Stock will be full of creative activities including designing your own props and costumes for the show with the help of our partners at K12 Gallery. The focus of the second week will be refining your performance skills as you work as an ensemble to ensure a successful production for family and friends to enjoy!
