MIDDLETOWN, Calif. – A two-week acting camp that will give young people an experience with theater and drama takes place this month in Middletown.
The acting camp is open to students who will be entering first through fifth grades in the fall.
The camp runs 9 a.m. to noon, Mondays through Fridays, June 18-22 and June 25-29.
Healthy snacks will be provided.
The cost is $200 per child.
“Acting builds confidence, self-esteem, and helps discover new talents. That, plus it’s a lot of fun,” said camp director Jessica Sage.
Sage has been teaching acting as well as directing theater for 15 years. She hopes this camp will be a place for young people to be expressive, creative and spontaneous in a noncompetitive environment.
“Young people need a healthy and safe way to express themselves,” Sage said. “Creating characters allows them to do that.”
Campers will have the full experience of putting on a show – everything from learning lines to performing in front of an audience.
They will rehearse a play, “Alice in Woodland,” and perform on the last day of camp.
Alice will be joined by her friends including the Cheshire Cat, March Hare, Mad Hatter and the Queen as she learns a big lesson in the forest.
All campers will have their own parts in this spirited and funny tale.
Campers will perform for invited friends and family on Thursday, June 28, at 6 p.m. and Friday, June 29, at 11 a.m., followed by a cast party.
