Set the Stage Theatre Camp
Monday, July 22 @ 9:30 am - Friday, July 26 @ 9:30 am
This popular performing arts camp returns offering students age 6 through 14 an all-day, week-long theatre experience.
Led by Palace Academy of the Arts Director Kristi Wink (B.F.A. Acting; Choreographer, Marion County & City Schools) and professional educator and Palace Productions Director Emily Yaksic (B.A. Theatre Education; Drama teacher, Columbus City Schools), this 7 hour- a-day, 5 day camp is packed from start to finish with activities geared at linking the thrill of performance with the instruction needed to grow your camper’s passion and skills – and it’s all in a fun-filled camp setting.
Activities include learning to create scenes, perform improv skits, and write dialogue. Lessons to be learned include taking risks, thinking outside the box, creating the “who, what, and where” of a skit or sketch to guarantee the audience laughs, and more. Additional camp time will be spent on vocal quality, physicality, and character development.
Camp concludes with a song and dance number. Taught in a fun and creative way, dance will challenge campers to focus on stage presence and proper dance technique for experiences in high-energy musical theatre choreography, a valuable experience in preparation for school and Palace stage shows.
Mid-day will afford camp goers the opportunity to enjoy their brown bag lunches brought from home. Mid afternoon, the Palace will provide a snack to keep campers at full steam for their closing session. Friday afternoon includes pizza for the campers to refuel before the final performance presented for family and friends!
Don’t miss this opportunity to introduce your budding actor to the stage or to expose your already aspiring actress to an even deeper theatre experience.
Camp meets daily from 9:30am to 4:30pm.
Camp cost includes t-shirt, daily snacks, and pizza before final performance: $165; $150 sibling; $145 PCAA member (Musical Director level and above). Register by calling (740) 383-2101 or enroll online HERE.
