Campers will experience a mini-production and will not only be the cast, but will also write the script. Campers will enjoy improvisation games, learn how to understand and develop characters, create simple sets, props, and costumes, then will participate in a live-streamed performance for family and friends Friday afternoon.
Arts Center’s summer camps follow stringent safety guidelines. Each camp has reduced capacities, allowing for social distancing. In addition, face masks are required for all campers and staff.
Half-day campers should bring a water bottle and snack. Visual art campers should wear old clothing and/or bring a smock to protect their clothes. Theatre campers should bring a lunch.
Curbside drop-off and pick up will be in effect for all camps.
Our current health climate is ever-changing and these policies may be evaluated per local and state ordinances.
