Play in a Week Camp

Ever wonder what it takes to put a play on its feet? In one week, we will take a play from script to stage. Campers will help organize and create sets and props, stage and rehearse a one-act play that we will perform as a showcase at the end of the week. The afternoon campers from the Tech Titans Camp will be working all week to add lights, sound, stage and large props to make our final performance one you won’t soon forget! Come experience the magic of theatre as we put on a Play in a Week!

Tech Titans Camp

The superheroes of theatre aren’t only on the stage – there is a mighty team of technical wunderkind behind the scenes. Combining the forces of mind and body – Tech Titans design and build the set, properties, lighting and sound of all shows earning applause. Join forces for hands-on instruction: stage make-up – including aging and scars/wounds; scenic painting; light and sound design in state-of-the-art theatre software. While learning the craft, Tech Titans will also build a few set pieces and props for the morning Play in a Week Camp. On Friday – it is a whole day of activity as we call the Titans to assemble as the technical crew for the culminating performance for the families of both camps to enjoy. (Note: power tools and ladders may be used during instruction. Please have CAmPers wear long pants and short sleeves with close-toed shoes.)

Students will have time to write out their own screenplay, then work with others in the class to create a set and gather or create props and costumes.

Twisted tales will have kids “wonder”ing about what version of a story is the truth, and whether it may just be in the eye of the beholder!
