SET THE STAGE SUMMER CAMP IS BACK! JULY 2021
Designed for ages 7 to 15 years, Set the Stage Theatre Camp is a 5-day camp experience to give campers the opportunity to develop their performance skills, express their creativity, and have fun while making new friends.
This summer, students will have a blast channel surfing at CAMP TV! Each day will focus on a different well known tv genre. Students and instructors are encouraged to come dressed as favorite characters or stars according to the theme of the day. The fun kicks off on Monday with music and scripts from NICKELODEON & DISNEY. Tuesday’s classes will draw inspiration from ESPN. Wednesday’s theme is centered around CARTOON NETWORK. On Thursday students will dive into the classics from TV LAND. Parents and guests are invited to attend the final group performance on Friday afternoon. Admission will not be charged for this event.
Camps will be led by Palace Productions Director Emily Yaksic (B.A. Theatre Education; Drama teacher, Columbus City Schools) and assisting with areas of dance and vocal music are Kristi Wink and Bethany Stang. Students will meet daily from 9am to 12noon. Camp fees for all ages are $85 and includes a camp t-shirt! Camp size may be limited to comply with Ohio safety guidelines.

GROUP LESSONS – YOUTH ACTING – CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
Even if your child isn’t dreaming of a full time stage career, acting classes build skills to last a lifetime. Students participate in theatre games to explore voice technique and movement, while learning to think on their feet and building acting skills. In addition to improvisation, character development, and pantomime exercises, students work on individual monologues and scene work. Proven to build self confidence and boost communication skills, classes equip students for opportunities onstage and in life. Instructor Kristi Wink. AGES 8-10 YRS | AGES 11-14 YRS | AGES 15+ YRS
